Foz do Iguaçu – Water, water, butterflies and more water

Miya – Sorry Niagara, you just don’t stack up to Foz do Iguaçu.  We were able to check out this fantastic bird park where we literally were inches away from Tucans and Macaws.  Another exertion was the biking/canoeing trip we took – where we saw a wild monkey!  The falls themselves were impressive – we walked the path over the water, where the mist of the falls were so strong, you would start dry and return soaked.  But that wasn’t a problem in this humid 90 degree weather.  The highlight was the boat ride where the driver literally took you under the waterfall. The whole group of people would scream like people do on a roller coaster.

Paulo – Quando eu tinha mais ou menos uns 12 anos, conheci Foz do Iguaçu pela primeira vez e apesar de naquela viagem já ter sentido o poder das cataratas e a beleza do parque nacional, eu não tinha o equipamento nem o interesse de produzir imagens como tenho hoje em dia. Sendo Foz um estúdio de fotografia ao ar livre, já dá p/ imaginar quanto tempo Miya e seus pais tiveram que parar p/ me esperar nas trilhas e passeios… Boa parte do nosso planeta é formado por água e em Foz do Iguaçu, você realmente entende e acredita nisso. Confira as imagens e não esqueça da toalha…
