What a way to mark a border! Iguazu means big water and they are not exagerating. The falls which mark the border between Brazil and Argentina stretch for one and a half miles and have over 200 separate cascades. There is a campaign for it to be a wonder of the world and having seen it up close I can´t help but agree.
No stranger to glitz and glamour you may have seen them yourself in Moonraker, or the last Indiana Jones movie. They are 4 times wider than Niagra and the hydroelectric power plant down river satisfys almost 40% of Brazils and Argentinas power needs.
But it wont be the facts and figures that I remember it will be the experiance of standing close enough to get a thorough drenching.
