Flag of Brazil  , Parana,
Thursday, November 15, 2012

A slightly more complicated journey this time. Foz sits between the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. The posada owner kindly drove us across the border, firstly out of brazil and then across the bridge to the argentinian side. Here the park was less tamed, with footpaths and maps, no theme park style bus. The first two walks took us upclose to some of the falls. Close enough to feel the cool spray (and with many a photo opportunity for Marty :)) The third path was reached by a small train and took us right up to the largest
convergence of the falls. The wide mouth of the slow moving iguassu river suddenly and dramatically drops in a v-shaped ridge nicknamed the devil's throat. Incredible. Knackered and snapped out we treated ourselves to a few beers (oh dear is anyone else seeing a theme emerging here?) before our pickup for back to brazil and the posada.
Such a long day could only be rounded off by instant noodles and a disco nap before our new friends marcio and fabio picked us up at 10.30 for a night on the town, Foz style. Margueritas and Pizzas followed. Then more beer. And suddenly it was 2am and only 2 hours before out flight to Sao Paulo. Needless to say that it was a challenge to make it to the airport but a fitting end to our Foz experience. Onwards to Sao Paolo!
