A big lizard!

The first waterfall (with lots of resident birds)

Our last call in Argentina! We LOVED the falls and the national park (tho our legs are exhausted from all the walking!). The number of waterfalls, and the variety of animals and especially butterflies were incredible, and the biggest fall - the Garganta del Diablo - was fairly indescribable, but literally breathtaking! We were in Puerto Iguazu for a few days and also walked down to the three frontiers (where we could see Brazil and Paraguay across the rivers from Argentina). We stayed at a lovely hostel with a pool :), and met a nice couple from Australia - Nicole & Jason - who were on their honeymoon, and beat us at cards!
