Iguazu Falls Day 2/Itaipu Dam

Monday, April 20, 2009

We got to see the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls today. It's not as impressive as the Argentinean side, but just as beautiful. I'm glad we decided to see both sides.

Headin down the trail...

this is actually where we took the boat ride yesterday...

YUCK!

I was able to catch some cool rainbow shots...

We also visited Itaipu Dam. This is the largest energy producing dam in the world. It produces 20% of Brazil's electricity as well as 90% of Paraguay's. The dam borders both countries. Sorry, I had the wrong lens on and I was too lazy to change it.

I took a picture of their picture instead... :)


We're headed back to Buenos Aires tomorrow...don't know what's in store for us, we don't have any plans yet!

The shots with the rainbow are pretty cool. All that water is so awesome. Oh, the yucky spider or was that something more than a spider. Hope it got away! The dam is pretty impressive too!
