Well, i arrived to iguacu after a 18 hour drive in a bus. The ride was great as we were served food all the way and were being taken of really well.
On the arival i found out that the couple in front of me was irish and that they too were on the way to the same hostel i was and so we shared a taxi to the argentinian side of the falls and then took a bus together to the hostel.
The hostel appears to be a party place with a pool and very nice staff. Also there is a big group of argeninian girls here along with a guy that seems to control them all dancing all night near the pool (should have taken photos of that....). Anyway i am having a really good time in this hostel.
On the first day i went to see the argentinian side. At the bus stop i found an israeli girl that came back to see the falls for the second day and so i found a guide (not that one needs it as the trail is sement built).
First we went on a 3 km hike to
see one of the smaller falls in Iguacu and on the way we met many butterflies, spiders and lizards. The fall was nice but did not prepare me for the real Iguacu falls.
After this trip our ways split and i continued the iguacu trip on my own.
The second day was suppose to be for the Brazilian side of the falls but as the word was that there is not much to do there i wanted to visit a bird park that was close. I hooked up with the irish couple i met on the bus and together with an israeli that now lives in NYC we were arranged a taxi to the falls on the brazilian side.
Our first stop was the bird park. The park was full of very nice birds and some were cages where you could walk in and acutally tuch the birds themsleves.
After that the falls were next. When going into the park we encounted a repel stand that promised a rapel with good view of the falls and so we did not say no.
That was the end of my trip to Iguacu. Next - Buenos Aries.
