Yesterday-afternoon, Mieke, a belgium girl I met in Manaus walked into the hostel. Funny and nice to meet her again. So, today we went together to the Argentinian side of the Iguaçu Falls. Yeah, i´ve been to Argentinia! We didn´t go with a tour as we were quite adventurous today, and we were send the wrong way two times. After an hour of searching and asking we were at the border. Stamped our passports and went with two other busses to the Iguaçu Falls. Really nice - but touristic - park with walking paths leading to the best spots. We had some close-up and panoramic views and the buldering sounds were overwhelming.

For a touristic price we could go on a boat and go into the waterfall, so we did... we were tourist afterall. Really nice to feel the power of the water so close. So after 3 rounds we went to the little beach were the fish sucked on your toes, saw loads of butterfllies, and pictured pretty birds that found the attention of the camera´s rather interesting. Not to forget the Coati Racoon that wanted to rob my backpack with cakes... Funny creatures. There were so many nice spots that at 5 we didn´t see it all, we missed one far end of the falls, but we were tired, ate icecream and went back to the hostel.

Mieke left allready and I met two new dutchies from Tilburg, drunk, drank, and had more drinks.
