Sup! so basically my ipod touch is killing me, writing on it is the bain of my life (no exxageration), so sorry for all the mistakes so far, will strive to check my spelling more. gimme a chance i am a mathesmagician.
Am in Argnentina now! boom
So Brazil was awesome, highlights were; view from sugar loaf, night out in melt, Arraial D´Juda village, Horse riding in Morro, and night out in Pulsar! loved Brazil but ready for next country, brazilians are way too loud!!!!
The journey from Morro de Sao Paulo was probs the longest and most varied we have had yet! Got two boats, two cars and two planes.
First boat was speed boat in the dark, was soooo fast and the water was so flat and sky was so clear was such an amazing experience, driver also stopped off at an island to get something and we almost floated away. Second boat was a huge ferry with very loud an annoying bahia fans with a couple chundering on the floor and just leaving it! Haha. Then slept in airport and got two flights. Got here checked into our hostel then had a
meaty by the kilo lunch and went to look at the brazilian side of the falls. Came out from the trees and we were all thoroughy disappointed as it looked pretty average, we figured it was because it hadnt rained, but turned out we were not there yet and looking at the end of it! So went along and was suitably astounded! Lots of rocks that looked like smurfs coz they had spiky grass like hair, and lots of water this time. had a few leftover coins and made a fews wishes as well as trying to think of new travellery poses for photos........ i am a traveller after all
We were all so shattered that we went to bed at 9.30 and all just read in bed for a bit, so rad! but we wanted to get up early so we could get over to Argentina side and bash that out. so border crossing was pretty easy just get one bus ticket and get stamped by brazil then argentina, also spent my last reals on an ice cream treat for the girls..... player. we then checked into our hostel using my jps (johnstons positioning system). me and em have a four bed room to ourselves so nice for some peace and quiet. set off to look at the argentinian side of the falls which is even better, and more expensive. first path was through the jungle part (with the most species of plants in argentina - yay!) and whilst we were walking a giant spider crossed the path, body big as my thumb and legs as big as my little finger (no exxageration) and hairy as a mofo, so naturally everyone lost there shit except me (well i got a bit nervous) but it was entertaining. Honesty went around with a stick rubbing the other girls backs of legs to pretend it was a spider and got some good reactions out of that! then went along three paths to look at higher falls, lower falls and the island in the middle. We were gonna do a boat trip under some of the falls but there wasnt enough water appaz. so we got boat to island and walked up shed loads of step and saw the viewpoint from there then looked at another cool part of the falls. then we got the train to the devils throat and walked a km across the river (on a bridge) to the devils throat which was amazing!!!lots of water and mist! and saw sooooo many rainbows (all the way across the sky, it was so intense) so that was cool
We then came back and ate then set off again to do the moonlight falls experience. the guide was scary the girels saying jaguars and spiders come out at night, didnt see any tho. the train went thru the same jungle, but it was really misty this time and eerie and we had been talking about the woman in black, so em screamed when she saw a sign that she thought was trying to grab me. Devils throat was even better this time, and walked across the bridge under the moonlight with it reflecting on the water! guess what, we saw a moonbow! that was pretty coolazio
so again couldnt hack a night out as had to check out early and going to buenos aires by bus tonight, gonna go and shave my head now
