So Many Waterfalls...

On our way back to Argentina, we couldn´t miss the greatest waterfalls in South America: Iguazú.

The falls are located between Argentina and Brazil. The national parks have a total of 275 falls (!), some over 80 meters tall! Basically, just when you think you took the perfect picture, there is another better waterfalls just around the corner.

The most impressive one if the Garganta Del Diablo (the Devil´s Throat), a U-shaped 700 meters long waterfalls. The waterflow is so high, and the falls so powerful, that it is impossible to see the bottom of it — it´s just mist. As you get closer, you just get soaked (I did!). It is said that this waterfall is very close to how people used to imagine the end of the world… water and a bottomless hole.

The Argentinian side of the falls allows extreme close-up views. Several catwalks lead to many falls, and you find yourself sometimes on top of them, sometimes under them. I was always surprised to see the water so calm, right before it hits the edge of the cliff and then suddenly flows so quickly and powerfully.
