When Chris decided to visit me in Buenos Aires for 8 days we wanted to do a side trip and had considered Iguazu, Uruguay and Mendoza.
Iguazu won out after talking to other travelers who had been to all three and said it was amazing.
A waterfall is amazing?
But Iguazu Falls is one of the most famous landmarks in Brazil and Argentina.
I was skeptical that a waterfall was worth a 16-hour bus ride. I’ve been to Niagara Falls.
I took my family on a jungle tour in Ecuador that had dozens of waterfalls. A waterfall is a waterfall, right?
I have never seen anything like this.
Iguazu is massive and powerful. People are drenched in water from the spray. In some places you have to yell to be heard.
We had a great afternoon walking around the falls. On our way back to the hostel we talked about what I would write for the blog and if it should be titled Don’t go chasing waterfalls – which Chris sung that day.
I tried to think of something clever or introspective to write.
I have nothing.
Some days I just see cool things, they don’t make me evaluate my place in nature or ponder the universe.
They don’t help me question what I am doing with my life.
They just make me smile. And sometimes that’s enough.
