Beauty can appear in many ways. I really love mother earth and think she without doubt is the best architect ever. Usually I find mountains and beaches the most interesting, but the place I’ve been visiting the last two days is indescribable. I have literally been chasing waterfalls for two days.
Iguazu Falls are located on the border between Argentina and Brazil and consist of 260 different waterfalls. It’s the not highest in the world but by FAR the largest when it comes to the amount of water passing by. I think that people sometimes abuse superlatives like «breathtaking» – but this place really can live up to it. The sight, size and sound of all this is just unbelievable and pictures can’t justify the size of it.
80 % of the falls are in Argentina and 20 % in Brazil (this is as far as my mathematic skills go btw). The first day I spent in Argentina where you should be prepared for a whole lot of walking. I estimate I walked at least 10 kilometers. There are so many waterfalls to see and there is a «lower walk» and an «upper walk» and both offer great views of the falls. As always when visiting touristic areas you should be there early. I was there at 8 AM when opening and stayed until 14.30 which was enough I think. I would say this is one of the «tourist traps» really worth visiting just like Machu Picchu.
Day two I spent on the Brazilian side which is smaller and just takes around 2 hours to see. Here you see the falls from a little more distance and get a good overview look.
That’s it that’s all folks!
