My 13 this Thursday is from The Iguazu Falls on the Frontier between Argentina and Brazil. All pictures taken first week of December 2007. I will come back to more details about the trip and the surroundings and sad facts about the Rainforest. You my look at this as a teaser. OK?
1 - Walking in the Rainforest, you can hear a noise. And suddenly ----
2 - Wow - what is this?
3 - Closer and closer
4 - Very close - you can even come here in a wheel chair. 5 - Here the River starts falling down into the Cataratas de Iguazu - Foz do Iguazo
6 - Water everywhere - it's incredible large
7 - Waterclouds 8 - Rainbow 9 - Impressive
10 - Close and wet - haha - very refreshing
11 - These birds lives only in the Iguazu Falls. Their body temperature force them to stay inside the falls - but they need food and fly out to catch insects. But they can not stay outside for many minutes. Enlarge to watch.
12 - Can we come closer?
13 - Yes, on the Iguazu River in Boat (that's another story)
..... More to come (about the sightseeing options and the Riverboat tour)
PS. This was originally meant to be posted under "Cyber Cruises
