Dave has been a stick in the mud with his class- he literally goes to school or studies around the clock- so I decided to head up to Iguazu Falls in northern Argentina. I sprung for a ticket to fly there (about $150) and took a 17-hour bus back.

I had a little trepidation about spending the money and going... so often these "can't miss" sites can be easily missed alright, but I'm wasn't sure when I would have the chance to do it again. I met a couple of Danish girls at the hostel and we set out one morning for a full day of walking around Iguazu Falls park.

I could pull out a thesaraus and start an adjective game, but in a word they were incredible. I'm glad I went, and think that everyone should try and do it in there life. Hopefully the pictures do it some justice. I have been around "big" water my whole life, but I have never witnessed the power of water like I did in Iguazu.

No I am back in Buenos Aires for a few more days, enjoying more of the city while I can. Dave is like a piece of furniture in front of his laptop except for his occasional threats of suicide because he is stressed out about his CELTA course. Usually I let him stress in peace while I take epically long walks around the city.

Will post a few more pics of Buenos Aires soon and a final update of what I'm going to do.
