Return to the Falls: the Brazilian side

Almost 10 months after first seeing the Iguazu Falls from Argentina, we have returned to see the Falls once again, this time on the Brazilian side.
Although we got so much more close and there was a lot more to see on the Argentinian side, we had a great overall view of the Falls on Brazilian territory. We arrived early before the masses and were welcomed by a group of coatis (fluffy tailed racoon type things). A path wound its way through the jungly side of the canyon with one side overlooking different parts of the Falls as we went. The scenery was stunning and, as it was quite early, a lot of the waterfalls were partly hidden by mist. It was a lovely walk with photo opportunities galore!
We got to the Garganta del Diablo (the Devil´s Throat) and got a bit wet from the spray from the gigantic waterfall. We could see lots of ´dots´ that were people standing under the Argentina flag on the other side of the huge waterfall bowl, just where we had stood 10 months ago.
Although we preferred the Argentina side, the Brazil side is very spectacular and well worth the trip. The overall views are fantastic. It just feels so strange to be back here so close to the end of our Latin American journey when we first visited the Falls at the start of our trip.
