Iguazu, Too

Published by OBC on

This time we go Brazilian.

Took advantage of a four-day Thanksgiving Weekend, a friend of ours to bus out to Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil to see their side of the Falls and check out the town. We hit up a Churrasqueria / Brazilian Steak House to do Turkey Day Feast.

The following morning we ventured to the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls. While less walking area than the Argentine side, it had some spectacular views. Saw some Toucans. And while others wore cheap plastic ponchos to brave the wet, I just went straight into it.

(Please people, when done with your coatamundi, please put them in the regular trash… they are not recyclable. Thanks.)

A wet day was wetter when the rains came pouring down in such a fierce storm half the town had a black out. Was cool, one of the staff at the sushi place we went to used an umbrella from a patio table to try and shield/protect customers as they hurried in.

We heard that some of the damage caused by the flood a couple years ago to the Argie side, making Garganta del Diablo visible, had since been repaired, so we booked a trip there as well.

The view was simply staggering.

Also took some time to check out a local craft beer store and score some cerveza. It was not yet open so we stopped at a beer garden, had a submarino. Learned the hard way it’s just a mediocre lager with an upturned shot of tequila in it. Was rough, but finished it. Fortunately my experiences in Rio and Curitiba made shopping for beer much easier.
