Weather was not cooperating with us the first day. We arrived at Iguazu Falls area in a cloudy day. We spent a
few days touring the little town on the Argentina side, and visited a viewpoint where 3 countries meet each other.
We arranged a tour at the Argentina National Park the next day.
We began walking into the National Park, getting closer and closer to the Falls. We could hear the noise and see the beautiful
rainbows every time we crossed a small fall. Then we took the boat ride at the bottom of the Falls. It was a very fun
experience. I have to admit that it was much better than "The Maid of Mist" at Niagara. It was about the Madness and the Wetness
of this boat ride. Make sure you watch the video clip below.

The same day, after we finished the tour in the Argentina side, we attempted to make it to the Brazilian side. However, we didn't know
the park was closed at 5pm until we spent 1 full hour walking across the border in the bloody sunny 35°C day. Well, we went back to Argentina
The 3rd day was the most interesting of all. The plan was to visit Paraguay, then to the Brazailian National Park, and then back to Argentina
for our eco-adventure. Our day started with an episode at the Brazilian Border Immigration, where the officer was really mad at us about some
missing stamps on the passports. We continued with out 1st mini car accident, hit by a speeding motorcycle from behind.
Then it came the ugly bribery at Paraguayian border. We paid USD$20 per person to enter Paraguay with any offical stamp on our passports. Technically,
we were smuggling ourselves into the country. After all, we visited the Brazilian National Park of Iguacu. The experience of getting face-to-face to
the Falls was very enchanting. We were totally soaked from head to toe.
As we were heading back to Argentina side, our 2nd car accident happened. This time our car hit someone's from behind as our driver was looking down to
check on something. Man, ...it was dangerous. We then followed to do our eco-adventure, climbing, ziplining, and water fall rappelling. The day was really
full of surprises. We missed Iguazu.
Walked over to Brazil, trying to make it to the Brazilian National Park, but ...
The next morning ... weather was looking good.
