"275 waterfalls? C'mon now, you're jokin me!" I exclaim as my bus heads towards Iguassu Falls, the Brazilian side. I say the Brazilian side because Iguassu Falls is no ordinary bunch of waterfalls. Oh no. It's the 5 meat patty whopper of waterfalls. It's the 3 piece feed of waterfalls. Sorry, it's almost lunchtime. It's a beast. It's a beast so big that it takes 2 countries to control it and pimp it out as a tourist attraction. It's pretty god-damn big people.

Monkey's have a habit of stealing the show, most notably the ones who wear army pants and get drunk daily outside Red Square in Moscow. The little bastards almost had the same effect on yours truly before the waterfalls had been given their chance to shine. I mean, who wouldn't get caught up watching a family of monkey's throw sticks at Asian tourists? Brilliant.

Finding the right words to describe the enormity and downright outrageous "are you taking the piss?" impressiveness of Iguassu Falls is difficult for a man of my, admiteddly, limited intellect, so I've instead come up with some words that DON'T accurately describe them -

small

shallow

over-rated

dry

ugly

quiet

slow-moving

Once you get your first glimpse of the star of the show, Garganta del Diablo, or Devil's Throat, all monkey related antics are quickly forgotten. The mouth of the beast that is Iguassu Falls surely belittles all who view it. Itīs a mindblowing experience, or almost a mindblowing experience - the hordes of tour groups and Argentine school children prevented my mind from being completely blown. Though it may not appear that way due to my shoddy, hap-hazard writings. Iguassu Falls - magic.

From the beast to the beauty - I'm off to Buenos Aires...
