the boat trip was exhilarating too, sittin at the front we bore the brunt of the falls as they literally fell onto the boat. simulating every sense as we smelt, tasted, heard and felt the great power of the rio parana at its wildest. Sight was less shocking as it was difficult to keep your eyes open, especially looking up into the heavy falling water, although very rewarding
afterwards we explored san martin island, between the falls and coverd in dense jungle. As we landed on the beach we were greeted by lizards which quickly distracted us from our dripping clothes. we explored the island which was constantly being circled overhead by flocks of >80 vultures. the trail was exciting and faye kindly offered to carry my t shirt on her head to protect her from spiders as i went topless thru the jungle.
after the island and looking for a bit of lunch we ran into a family of monkeys commuting through the jungle.
