After getting to Foz do Iguacu at 6am and in the freezing cold we weren´t in the best of moods, but still managed to walk all the way to the hostel (which took about 2 hours) to save money. After we got here we settled down and then headed out to explore the town. It´s nothing special, a bit like Curitiba really, but we weren´t here for the that, we were here for the billions of gallons of water that stream down the 250 waterfalls just down the road! A very impressive sight it was indeed, when we finally got there. If it had~´t been for the teenager projectile vomiting it would have been perfect. Best views of Brazil so far! The falls are so incredibly huge and vast, and the rainbows and mist clouds so pretty that we are going to have to go back there today, and then to the Argentinian side of them on Thursday. I would try to describe in greater detail but it´s too great a task, so we´ll try and upload pictures (for all our blogs) now. Fingers crossed!
We are Laura and Dom, we are both orginaly from Bristol in the UK and currently teaching English in Iida, Japan; and loving it!
We have had some amazing adventures, in 2005 we spent ten weeks in South America seeing a snapshot of Brazil, Boliva and a little bit of Peru. We then popped to Spain for 6 weeks, Slovenia for 2 1/2 and then we popped to Poland for Laura's 21st birthday. Then I think we went to Amsterdam, but can't really remember! One day we'll get around to writing up these trips.
We've just finished 5 months in SE Asia, having been to Malaysia, Borneo, the Philippines, Cambo... full info
