To get to the rooms here one has to walk along wooden walkways. There was a huge thunder storm last night , so loud it woke me up and this has left lots of leaves on the walkways. The air is very damp here even when it is not raining, although it is still warm.  The lodge is delightful, with a pool, too cold to go in though, and seating areas dotted around the place. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

I went on a guided walk into the jungle after breakfast, I didn’t see any wild animals but I did get very muddy.  My guide arrived at noon to take me to the Brazilian side of the Iguacu Falls.  The falls are in Iguacu National Park, created in 1939, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, since 1986, with over 600,000 hectares of protected area and 400,000 of primary rain forest.

The falls are formed by the waters of the Iguacu river, which means ‘big water’, there are 275 waterfalls. It is massive.  One can hear the falls before they can be seen.

There. are. no. words…. no. words. to describe this.
