Iguazu Falls

I would love to say that I was immediately blown away by Iguazu Falls. I mean, don't get me wrong. They are absolutely gorgeous. I am really glad we decided to take the route that we did and had the opportunity to see them.

What I didn't expect is how, well, how should I put this, organized the whole thing would be. Trains and paths and employees and boats and photographers and sandwiches. This place has some serious infrastructure.

It was nice for sure, made the visit very convenient. We got to get right up close to some massive waterfalls. We got great angles from which to photograph waterfalls. We got to take a speedboat INTO waterfalls. And do all of this without soiling the soles of my shoes.

I think what hindered a greater appreciation was the inabiility to wrap my head around the fact that they were REAL. The set-up felt alot like walking around Sea World, I expected an employee entrance hidden behind one of the waterfalls to open at any moment.

Looking back, I'm like, "Holy shit we saw saw some amazing fucking giant waterfalls!" I think I might want to go back ;)
