Sometime we headed to the bus station and boarded a comfy bus.  We were surprised when we got served some food and drink and got to watch some movies.  The bus took 20 hours and in the morning we pulled into a town near the falls.  We had the rest of the day to check out the falls, so decided to go to the Brazilian side, which we had heard was better.  We caught a bus which dropped us at the border to get our passports stamped and left us there.  Not knowing what to do we started walking down the road into Brazil.  Down the road a bit we got a bus to stop that took us to the rest of the way.  You buy your ticket and then catch another bus through the jungle surroundings to the start of the path to the falls.  After a couple minutes walking you can already see part of the waterfall (its soo big anywhere you are you can only see part of it).  Its bloody amazing.  The falls is made up of tons of smaller waterfalls all different sizes.  So much water is constantly falling.  As you walk around the path you see more and more of the waterfall and get even more impressed.  At some parts you can see a rainbow over the water which is totally epic.  Further along the path there were some random furry animals, not sure what they were tho.  At one part you can walk out on this walkway into the river.  Its pretty spectacular and totally wet.  It doesn't take long to get soaked by the spray coming off the falls.  Right next to the part where most of the water falls there is an elevator that takes you right up so that you are looking down on the waterfalls and the river leading up to them.  Across the other side you can see a walkway that goes the top of the waterfall from Argentina which looks like it would be incredible to see as well (maybe next time).
After some hours of being impressed by falling water it was time to go.

I gather the 'furry' animals you spoke about are the 2 wearing the dark glasses. LOL
