The next morning we were up early and on the bus to the falls about 20 minutes away. After rushing past the purple haired brigade, we jumped on the little train that took us to the walkway to get to the falls. The walking bridge was about 1km long and was over the top of water all the way
After taking some time to enjoy the whole experience we then headed to the lower section of the falls where we took a speed boat through some smaller falls (San Martin) and became completly saturated. Good fun. Butterflies filled the air and rainbows popped up in various areas, with perfect falls cascading over the edge of rocks everywhere. Truely an excellent experience.
While Kate went for her own walk, Paul and I jumped on a little boat that took us to the Island of San Martin. A quick īdry outī in the sun, we then walked all over this island to check out various other vantage points of seeing the falls. From here we could look straight across the river to Brazil at the sight of a bungee jumping set up. To my amazement you would be jumping right on the top of huge boulders!!! Not the best place to be jumping i thought.
We soon met up with Katie again, had some lunch and started out on a 3.5km walk to some less observed waterfall
By late afternoon we were fairly exhausted by all the trekking around and so we jumped back on the bus heading for home. What should we have for dinner? Nothing less than a personal bbq on our table for Paul and I. The most meat i have ever had put in front of me in one sitting. There wasnīt even the question of salad or chips. After being as big as a sumo wrestler from dinner we rolled home and let our stomachs digest the meaty meat with extra meat dinner special digest. Oooooh it was soooooo good!!! Sorry to any vegies who may be reading this. Argentina is by far fulfilling my fantasies as having the best bbq and meat EVER!!
The next day we chilled out, went for more walks and ended up watching the sunset over Paraguay with Brazil on our right! Sweet!
Now a 26 hour bus ride to Salta!!
