Flag of Argentina  ,
Friday, July 7, 2006

today we visited the argentinaen side of the falls. found them really beautiful. you get much closer to the falls, nearly in them, and on the boat trip we did we actually were engulfed with water. The argintanean park is huge and has many trails and waterfalls all hidden in dense jungle. also there are animals everywhere in the park, we saw monkeys, vultures, capybara and loads of lizards, to name a few. we much prefered this side as it offers a more extensive and natural experience than the brazilian side.

the boat trip was exhilarating too, sittin at the front we bore the brunt of the falls as they literally fell onto the boat. simulating every sense as we smelt, tasted, heard and felt the great power of the rio parana at its wildest. Sight was less shocking as it was difficult to keep your eyes open, especially looking up into the heavy falling water, although very rewarding.

afterwards we explored san martin island, between the falls and coverd in dense jungle. As we landed on the beach we were greeted by lizards which quickly distracted us from our dripping clothes. we explored the island which was constantly being circled overhead by flocks of >80 vultures. the trail was exciting and faye kindly offered to carry my t shirt on her head to protect her from spiders as i went topless thru the jungle.

after the island and looking for a bit of lunch we ran into a family of monkeys commuting through the jungle.
