Once we found a car parking space after Russ got into a disagreement over one, and treked 40mins to the beach with all the other tourist the arch was on the beach! Worth the agro!
So for an hour and a half we have finally negotiated the dodgy USB, holding the wire at a particular angle seems to do the trick.

Here are some pictures for u to view from New Zealand to Rio.

We made it across the border from Brazil to Bolivia yesterday and spent the night on the death train as it is known. For 15 hrs we shook and bounced north to Santa Cruz. All i can think to describe it was like riding a wooden rollarcoaster. Luckily Carina was sitting next to a very fat, jabba the hut sized man, so instead of being bounced in to the arm rest like Russ, she had a nice soft cusion! But we are alive, the train didnt detrail, get hijacked etc and it was only 30mins late! What a bargain, only 22 pounds for 594kms of funfare ride.

This was the view from our tent on our last night with Gramps the car and Tallulah the tent. We also shared this view with many sheep that were also sharing the field that night

This is what everyone in Uruguay walk around with. The cup with the spoon dug under the mate, bitter tea, which they suck on all day long

On the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls you are able to get much closer to Devils Throat, but it sure is a wet expericence.
