Iguazu Falls, Argentina

[nggallery id=176 template=”caption”]

I have been waiting for this day for a long time.  I have heard so much about this waterfall and it is definitely very fulfilling day.

This is one of the biggest waterfalls in the world, and it is definitely the most overwhelmingly magnificent in all of South America. So

impressive are they that Eleanor Roosevelt remarked “poor Niagara” on witnessing them (they are four times wider). Viewed from below, the tumbling water is majestically beautiful in its setting of begonias, orchids, ferns and palms. Above the impact of the water, upon basalt rock, hovers a perpetual 30-m high cloud of mist in which the sun creates blazing rainbows.

We bought some expensive lunch at this park.  While enjoying my fruit cup, 3 of those coatimundis (long nosed beavers) robbed our brand-new and expensive sandwich right from the center of our tray on our picnic table. They grabbed the sandwich, which caught my attention, so I grabbed it back, but they wouldn’t let go and dragged the sandwich away, right from my hand! While I was fuming with anger, he ran after them, jumped three fences, kicked their ass, and got our sandwich back 😀
