Iguazu Falls

After Rio (see blog) I took a bus to Iguazu Falls which are the most magnificent and overwhelming in all of South America. They are four times wider than Niagara and fall into both Brazil and Argentina from an altitude of 70 meters (230 ft), forming some 275 waterfalls with a length of 2.7 km (1.68miles). They're easily accessible and no trek is required.

After Iguazu I headed to Buenos Aires, Argentina and then Ushuaia (see blog) so that I can hopefully catch a boat to Antarctica.
