At breakfast we said good-bye to our traveling buddies for these past 10 days. In that time period we have experienced a down-home feel for Argentina as we have been hosted by Argentineans. Our Rotarian guide Nenu tried hard to have us experience her country and we thank her so much for an insiders feel. In that time period we have eaten lots of BBQ’ed meat, tasted different foods and been in the homes of Argentineans.
We lingered at the St George Hotel in Puerto Iguazu to respond to emails, and SKYPE our daughter. At 11:00 a taxi took us across the border to Brazil. Immigration was simple as we had our visa paperwork in order. For North Americans to go into Brazil a visa is required, and needs to be purchased ahead of entry. The taxi took us to the Best Western Hotel in Fos do Iguacu, however our room was not ready, so we decided to go to the Falls on the Brazilian side immediately. Our taxi driver was more than willing to take us to the Falls, and while we were there (for 2 ½ hours) he went home, ate and returned at 2:30, the appointed time.
