Half way point of our already amazing adventure around South America, we were driving into Rio De Janeiro and you could feel the excitement on the truck, people pointing out various buildings but mainly looking for Christo on the hill, he eventually showed his face but it was very small from where we were.
The Pantanal, this vast natural paradise is Brazil’s major ecological attraction and offers a density of exotic wildlife found nowhere else in South America, (thanks for that detail Lonely Planet Guide.)
It was a sad morning having to say goodbye to Argentina after spending so long here and we had to spend it shopping, buying for the upcoming cook groups and using up our last Peso, due to the higher prices in Brazil we stocked up on cider as it had the highest profit gain, that’s how I sold it to Chloe at least!
Going to Iguazu Falls was something we both were really looking forward too. Before the trip we googled every place we were visiting and the pictures from the falls looked absolutely amazing, hence this trip being a very excitable one for us.
Well, it was actually 2 countries as we didn’t cross the border into Paraguay until 4.30 the next morning, but that’s not a great title. We did actually spend 10 minutes illegally in Brazil too, but Brazil will have its chance soon.
