Next day, we headed to the Argentinean side of the falls. This time we went with a group which was cool and it gave Rachel a little sanity back - time away from me tends to do that to people. We had a really cool New Zealand couple with us, some British, Canadians, and even a guy from La Jolla! The guy from La Jolla was interesting because he lives in Colombia - of all places - 5 months out of the year and travels within South America extensively so he had a wealth of knowledge to impart. Anyways, the Argentinean side of the falls was even more impressive than the Brazilian side. Basically, it's the closest thing to being IN the falls and not actually being in it. You're right on top of everything almost like you're going to run with the falls over the side, which is much different than any other fall experience I’ve had – Iguazu Brazilian side included. We ultimately decided to take a boat trip that takes you head into the falls which was a wild ride. One moment you’re riding up to the falls the next moment the mist coming off of the falls completely engulfs you as the noise created from the falls is deafening and reverberates the whole boat. You can see nothing at this point and it feels like you’ve jumped into a cloud that’s creating lightning. Absolutely incredible!
