A mighty roar!
Speechless-I love the photo with your parents' hands over their mouths-so funny!

We were extremely lucky to witness this breathtaking roar. I read later on that 500 000 people were affected by the floods. How many died in Parana, Argentina or Paraguay? As we were driving to Foz, we got caught in a very serious downpour and the road disappeared for a a minute. It was so scary in our little rental car... Would have sucked on my bike!
