Iguazu Falls

Our 2 incredile months in Buenos sadly came to end. 2 months goes fast! 2 of my best friends, Ashley and Allison, came down to visit for our last week, which of course was incredibly fun.

All of us went together to our first stop out of Buenos which was Iguazu Falls, located on the Brazilian/Argentine border. We only had one day there so we spent the entire time on the Argentine side because everyone we talked to said its the better of the 2 sides. The waterfalls are so gorgeous - I´ve never seen anything like it in my life. Hopefully we´ll have some of the pics up soon because the scenery is really too hard to even describe. After hiking for most of the day, we hopped in a boat at the bottom of the falls and the boat driver proceeded to drive us directly under the falls! It was crazy - you literally have a massive amount of water pounding down on you and its impossible to see anything. Its one of those experiences where you´re kind of scared and you just can´t stop laughing. We all loved it :)
