On arrival at Iguazu (7.30pm after a day of travel) I booked into the Sheraton, beautiful resort and enjoyable staff. I was told that my room had a magnificent view of the falls, a bit mean i though as it was blacker than black outside. However I spend the windows of my balcony and was meat with the distant thunder roar of the falls. Next morning I was up at 4.30 as I did not want to miss the first glimpses of the falls and at 6.25 I managed to take the above picture, this was a tantalising morsel of what was to come over the next two days. (I shot about 600 photos).
At 8.30 my guide Marisa Duarte set me off on a majestic tour of the park and inundated me with the names of all the wildlife and fauna of the area. The only disappointment was that I did not get to see a Cayman however I did see (too quick for photo) a capuchin monkey leaping though the trees. I took many photos, both on manual settings and speed to get a different effect. If you look closely to the main picture you will see a walkway on the Brazilian side which most of the photos in my next post was taken. As a foot note there are over 275 falls in the area depending on the levels of water.
