After counting the cost of last night’s aerial bombardment, which coincidently i won, today we headed across to see the famous Iguassu falls - a UNESCO site – from the Brazillian side! For anyone looking to install a new Jacuzzi system at home might i suggest that you check out the falls here first for some true inspiration! Naturally enough we’ve uploaded a few photos but they don’t seem to do it justice in the slightest! If you ever have an opportunity to visit may I suggest you take the boat ride but be prepared to be drowned as they like to see the falls up close. Afterwards as we dried off we took the lovely riverside trail where the views just got better and better as we headed further up river!
Was it just me or didn’t the tour guide mention not to feed the local animal life I asked Leigh.....with us both in agreement we turned to watch one of our fellow visitors to the National Park Iguassu attempting to entice out the cute and adorable ‘Harry the hatchet’ from the scrubbery with a tasty morsel, somehow I felt that this was not going to end well! Indeed true to form Harry took the morsel to the delight of the assembled cameras and paparatzzi.....and then promptly returned for the rest of the finger!...Ohhhh that’s gonna hurt! As the cooing quickly turned to screeching, we thought it best to move on. I felt it best not to point out the obvious ‘Rabies Warning’ sign just over her shoulder. Later when we did bump into her by the confectionary section sporting the biggest finger bandage known to mankind we decided to ignore the slight foaming at the mouth..best not to make any assumptions just yet. One to the Hatchet!
3 dollars can make a real difference
For those of you on a budget, Hotel Mosquito is pretty much gonna be the norm...but if you have a natural talent for busking or can squeeze out an extra few dollars oh boy can you live like a king! After our ‘experience’ from the first night here in Iguassu we decided an upgrade was in order! Being the last of the big spenders i managed to find a few dollars more and was treated to wi-fi, a toilet and air conditioning! Ok i’ve only been here a week or so but you have no idea how nice these little luxuries can be. The next time i’m shopping in Waitrose i’m going to spend a little more time in the toilet roll section and pay homage to those soft bundles of joy or comfy bum as Leigh calls it! Anyway apart from the sparking shower, which appears to be heated by running water through the mains... all is well though Leighs hair is lightly curlier these days! .
