The rest of the world is going to have to work pretty darn hard to impress me, now that I have been to Iguazu Falls. Bordering Brazil and Argentina, Iguazu Falls should be a must-see for anyone traveling through South America. I stood literally right over the falls as they plummeted with such force below me, stood on a platform as they came crashing down beside me, and stood at the bottom of the falls staring up in awe, yet somehow, it is still hard to grasp that theywere real. Their beauty was so jaw dropping, it felt like something right out of a Stephen Spielberg movie. As though they were something someones creative mind made up for Avatar as opposed to something that Mother Nature actually created for us.
The falls literally surrounded you with their vastness, seemingly going on forever, never ending as you walk the trails through the National Park. The wildlife in the park only serving to add to the beauty, the birds coming to land beside you and sing, watching you with the sme curiousity you are looking at tem with; the South American version of raccoons watching you for signs of food, ready to grasp it from your hands should you reveal any; the butterflies coming to land directly on you, making peace with moving with you as you walk. All of it is something to be experienced, and a memory that will stay with me forever.
