My face is burning. I have underestimated the intense nature of the sun and the wind even though it is not that hot. It was very clever of me and Hannah to leave the suncream back in Buenos Aires so it would not take up valuable space in the bag!!
We went back to the falls today. They were even better than the brazilian side of the falls we saw yesterday! We took a chance and decided to go on a speedboat trip under the falls first thing. Definately a great decision. Our driver took us right under the falls and we got ridiculously, stupidly soaked. Thank goodness for the aquapac camera case! We got to dry off on San Martin Island - a little beach island in the middle of the national park. It was very cool and quiet at that time of day - 11am.
We explored the rest of the trails that the park has to offer and we never got tired of seeing each new waterfall as each one seemed more amazing than the last. We can´t wait to get the pictures put onto the computer. Hannah decked on one of the trails around the falls. It was hilarious although she is pining for attention now because of it! I wish i had filmed it for you,ve been framed.
Our hostel is amazing - the Anahi Hostel in Puerto Iguazu. We have a kitchen, 4 beds, bathroom, tv, towels and breakfast for 12pounds a night. I never thought i would say this but it is nice not to eat McDonalds or Burger King!
We are heading to the falls again tomorrow and then soaking in the luxury on the night bus back to Buenos Aires.
Phil and Hannah
