"the trusted voice of teens who travel"
April 30th, 2013
If you read my blog about Churrascaria, you know I have been to Brazil twice in my life. I first went to Brazil for a sabbatical (okay, vacation!) my whole family decided to take when I was five years old. I spent over a month in the region surrounding the Pantanal. My second trip to Brazil may have lasted about three hours. It was brief, to say the least. I was there because I spent one of my summers doing service work in South America. We were able to spend a few days in Argentina, but most of our time was spent working in Paraguay. We had a day off and we were lucky enough to be close to the border of Brazil (and Argentina) and were able to go to the Iguazu Falls (or Iguaçu Falls).
The Iguazu falls are a beautiful sight. So beautiful that Iguazu Falls was declared to be one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation.One can marvel just at the idea of the 2.7-kilometre-long edge, but the sight of these powerful waterfalls is a whole other stories. The falls bring an experience for all the senses, as the surrounding forests brings the sounds of birds and the smell of botanical life. Even the water flowing has a smell, which is almost refreshing in itself. The mist from the falls lightly touch your face, though when the wind comes it feels like a splash. And have I mentioned the sight?
