We arrived at Foz do Iguazu after a 24 hour bus journey. Nat managed to get virtually no sleep at all and was really really shattered. We arrived at the bus station and found that it was really hot. We took two different local buses and walked through the heat to get to the hostel that we had booked, only to find that they had made a mistake with our reservation. There were no double rooms available.
We decided that we would try out the dorm as it was much cheaper anyway. It actually turned out to be really nice and the people who were staying there with us had been on the bus down. The hostel was as good as they get, everything was clean and they had an outdoor bar with a swimming pool. There was also an outdoor kitchen where you could make your own meals.
There was a great vibe and we spent loads of time hanging out and getting to know the people there. There was a couple from london called Ruby and Lee, who we got talking to by the pool and we ended up cooking a meal with them on the first night.
20th December - We went to the Brasillian side of the iguacu falls (it is divided by the Argentine and Brazillian border)- It was absolutely stunning. We were expecting a big waterfall, but there is more like 270 different falls so they are everywhere you look and as you walk along the treck path they just get better and better. Natalie had a butterfly land on her hand and stay there for ages which made her so happy as she loves anything to do with butterflies.
