Flag of Brazil  , State of Parana,
Sunday, July 19, 2009

Sitting by the pool. Sun has fallen and even in the jungle it has gotten cool.  It's sweater weather!  Perhaps the mosquitos with all their yellow fever will stay put.  Tonight I’m having a mohito.  Yum!  All fresh ingredients.

Magnificence of the falls took my breath away today; it’s touristy-ness (which it goes over like a ratty sweater at the prom), not so much.  In that way it reminds me of the Grand Canyon. 

The Brazilian side surely provides the most panoramic views.  The falls appear out of the cliffs at every bend.  It’s like they’ve been made to cry.  The width of the river is just astounding.  I must have walked close to a mile and still the waterfalls continued to fall way past the stop for my hotel.

It’s back to reality tomorrow when I head to the big city where I have work for a couple of days.  Alas, my short vacation is over.  See you in the states soon!
