What a rush. I flew in on Tuesday and by the time I got to my hotel it was around 3 p.m. So I decided just to wait and see the falls the next morning, though my flight out was at 2 p.m.
Among my adventures was meeting two Irish women at my hotel who turned out to be nuns in plain clothes trying to convert me to Catholicism.
Now that I look back on my little trip to Iguazu, what a strange trip it was.
I took a cab to the falls and stashed my luggage in a locker at the park. My cab driver, Rafael, agreed to come back and pick me up at 1 p.m. to go to the airport. He was right on time! So after a crazy 4 hours of racing around the park, taking a jeep ride, a boat ride, a train ride and walking out on the catwalks to the Devil's Throat, I headed back to Buenos Aires to resume my vacation there.
It's amazing how well you can communicate without being fluent in each other's language. Honestly, my Spanish is limited but I can understand a lot more than I can speak. Rafael asked me all about where I was from, my family and my religion! Then he told me all about himself. He said he is a 7th Day Adventist, has 5 kids, enjoys going into Buenos Aires occasionally but only for a couple of days to see some Tango because the city is too crazy and fast-paced for him! He loves the Missiones area and gave me a book about it as a gift when he dropped me off at the airport.
- In a nutshell:See it if you have a couple of extra days in South America
I stayed here one night at a rate of $55 U.S. You could probably book it for less directly. This was through my travel... more travel advice
Whatever you do, don't miss this! You can walk all the way out to the beginning of the catwalks, or take the free train.... more travel advice
