We are still in Puerto Iguazu at the top of Argentina and very close to Paraguay and Brazil. We only meant to stay here for 2 nights but have ended up staying 3 due to the tropical rainstorm yesterday. It was wicked sunny today though so we got to go to the falls. They are amazing! Probably one of the best natural wonders. Well that I have seen anyway. It took us all day to check out the waterfalls and we took a jet boat ride which included going under the waterfalls and got soaked we loved it! Also saw monkeys lots of badgers, alligator, turtles and tropical butterflies. Tomorrow we are going to check out the Brazil side of the falls and then take the 18 hour bus to buenos aires.

Ciao

Late Starters

Posadas, Argentina

sunny 25 °C

So we are half way through and have decided to start a blog so easier to update everyone.

We arrived in Posadas Argentina yesterday after a 17 hour bus ride which turned into an 18 hour one due to the air conditioning breaking down. But we are used to that by now. Our bus ride from Uyuni to Villazon at the border of Bolivia and Argentina took 4 hours longer than the 9 hours expected due to the teenage drivers lack of experience driving through the windy mountains. At one point we all had to exit the bus as he hadn't been able to take the corner wide enough and was looking directly over the cliff!

But back to our current lodgings, they aren't bad! $66 New Zealand dollars has us holed up in a 4 star resort with pool jacuzzi sauna and complimentary buffet breakfast. So a bit of relaxation after our long bus rides.

We are taking a short bus ride today to our next stop Iguazu falls. Have booked to stay there 2 nights and we are hoping to catch the Mayweather Pacquiao fight at midnight tonight! Go Pacquiao!!!

Just going to give you some short extracts so hope you enjoy!

Until next time. Much love to everyone.

Ciao!! X
