We were really lucky with the weather though... after a week and a half or rain we had scorchers of days (we visited both the Argentinian & Brazil side). We also went to a bird & butterfly park on the Brazil side which was really good. We noticed a distinctly african flavour to the choice of international birds and it turned out that the owner is an ex-south african. Loo dropped her sunglasses in the caiman (alligators) pen, which she was very determined to fish out using two long bamboo sticks.Julia offered to quickly climb-over whilst no one was looking and retrieve them (...caimans are meant to be pretty placid right?). Mummy caiman was keeping a beady eye on our encroachment, which Loo suggested we keep at bay by tapping her on her snout with the sticks. This we did (much to the horror of an elderly American tourist who asked ´whether we still did this in the Union?´and mummy caiman decided she had had enough of our fishing, moving with surprising agility to crush stick and glasses in one jaw-crunching split-second. ok...im definitely not going swimming with the caimans..no matter what they say about them being pretty harmless!
