Out of the bubble......... One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.-- Henry Miller

Iguazu Falls!

Iguazu Falls!

August 4th 2019.

The reward is in the pudding....something like that.

It was a long ways coming with a few minor “speed bumps” and here we are in one of the most stunning part of nature the world has seen. 

We just about froze again a day prior with ugly rain and temperatures close to freezing at night. I really thought we were done with it, but no! 

The town of Puerto Iguazú is all -mostly expensive -hotels. But we lucked out again and found a guest house hidden away from the main drag. A family situation and we left the bikes and TOOK THE BUS! to the falls. That 17km (one way) narrow road with busses, trucks and no shoulder...we cycled getting to town, but it also leads to the falls....we didn’t need to do that again. We spend all day walking the perfectly laid out network of trails. On a Saturday there weren’t that many people and it was fairly cold, but so crispy clear! We couldn’t have picked a better day if we had actually picked it! Rainbows at every turn....the water doing it’s thing and the goosebumps on my skin were not about the temperatures. 

No words can describe this powerful feeling and this feast for the eyes. I am doing my best with this little video clip to give you a taste:
