the falls just seem to go on forever

The argentinian side rocks the brazilian side. Hard.

I got lucky this morning. talking with some kids at breakfast I learned that getting over to the argentinian side was not very easy, and that the simplest way was to drive over in a car reserved by the hostel which was leaving in a half hour. So thanks to these two kids form Minas Gerais, I made it to argentina.

Like an idiot, I forgot to charge my camera though, so we spent 20min or so kicking it at the entrance while my camera charged.

I ended up spending the day tripping through the park with these two. Good kids. We did the inferior trail, the boat ride (50 pesos, compared to R$180 on the brazilian side), the superior trail, and the devils throat. At the devils throat, we randomly got this group of mexican girls to take their picture with us, so now i've got a picture that makes it look like I went to the falls with 5 friends.

walk back from the boat ride. you can only imagine the nosie this monster makes
So that was really funny.

My camera got sorta wet. It's ok, but now the lens is all dirty. One of the Mineiro's said that he bought his camera for cheap in Paraguay (apparently the only thign to do in paraguay is buy cheap shit) and after he got home, he was going to download the pictures and sell the camera on Mercado Libre, the brazilian eBay. So don't trust mercado libre, cause his camera couldn't have been in better condition than mine.

That night I hung out with a bunch of german kids from the hostel, friends of one of my roommates (who lives in São Paulo!). On my way to bed i was fiddling with my locker when I heard some girls speaking french. After engaging them, I found out that they live in Saõ Paulo too! New friends much?
