Day 38 - Iguazú Falls

We woke up today to torrential rain. Yes, I realize this area is rainforesty and thus gets a lot of rain, but I was under the impression that it would rain almost every day, but just for an hour or so. It rained all day. Hard. With thunder and lightning. We decided to try to make the best of it and slogged our way around Iguazú Falls. Even in the shitty weather it was an amazing place. There are literally hundreds of waterfalls there and La Garganta del Diablo is the second-largest by volume in the world. Because of the weather, I only brought my point-and-shoot camera, and I'm glad I did, because it got repeatedly wet from the rain and the waterfall spray. The first image is of one of the smaller waterfalls (don't remember which) and the second is of the Devil's Throat (I would have needed a much wider-angled lens to capture all of it—it's something like 450 feet across).
