Went out on a boat to explore the picturesque coastline and swam in secluded bays. Well Pete swam and I just sort of drifted around with a float.
On Tuesday we set off very early in the morning in the minibus to Sao Paulo (4 hrs) and then flew to Iguazu Falls which are on the border between Brazil and Argentina.
Tuesday we visited the Falls on the Brazilian side - pretty impressive.
Tuesday evening we travelled over the border to Argentina.
Regarding the Falls, 20 percent are in Brazil and 80 percent in Argentina.
Wednesday was spent in the national park that incorporates the Iguazu Falls in Argentina - we have never seen such a spectacular sight as the sheer size and beauty of the Falls, which are surrounded by rain forest.
We went on a boat trip in the morning which went as close as possible to the Falls resulting in us all getting absolutely drenched. In late afternoon we went up in a helicopter and the views from the air were amazing.
Just on our way out to a BBQ for some Argentinian steak - tried steak last night and it was really good.
Pictures to follow - having trouble downloading here, fly to Buenos Aires tomorrow.
