Flag of Argentina  ,
Sunday, March 16, 2008

Puerto Iguazu was a lovely 12 hour bus ride from Concordia.

I slept nearly the whole way, the 2 meals were really, REALLY good and there was planty of coke and coffee - one of the best journies I can remember.

We arived in the centre and hopped on a local bus to the campsite. We set up tent with the broken tent, 2 roll mats and my midget sleeping bag and then got on another local bus to see the Argentinian side of Iguazu falls.

Iguazu falls is SO impressive. It is like 2 horseshoes of cascading water - there are hundreds of waterfalls and the Argentinian side is much better than the Brazilian one looks. We walked every inch of the park, all the trails, all the train journeys around the park and all the falls - it was so good.

We hopped on a little boat to go to a little island to get a different view of the falls, we saw them from above after a train ride and from below with some walking. Then we got on a speed boat and went under some of the falls - it was pricy at $20 but it was really good - and wet! So all in all we saw the falls from every angle imaginable and words cannot describe - look at the pics.

While we are hear Sarah needs to get her Brazil visa which costs $130 - $100 less than doing it from Uruaguay! It is certainly worth coming over here! - We3 have the visa sorted with the minimum of hastle - our accomodation for day 2 is nice and we have thrown away our crappy camping equipment as I am unlikely to camp by myself and Sarah will leave me tomorrow :-(
