Brazil entry 6 – Amazon & Foz do Iguaçu – Jake Daniels – 25 de Julho de 2015

August 18, 2015

Since my last post, we’ve visited Chapada dos Veadeiros for the Insight Electronic Music Festival, and spent 6 days in the Amazon Rainforest. Now, we’re relaxing in our hostel in Foz do Iguaçu. Chapada was great, but we’ve been there before so there’s nothing particularly special to report, besides making a new friend.

The Amazon was amazing. It was (possibly) a once in a lifetime, and I’m really glad we took the plunge to spend as much time as possible. We did a ton of wild things there. To highlight a few… the stars were incredible. I could never imagine seeing more stars than sitting in a canoe in the middle of the Amazon. The macaws were great (super loud), Spider monkey carrying a baby and swinging from a tree, fishing for piranha, etc.

Foz do Iguaçu is great too, so far. The size of the waterfall here is actually hard to conceive. At first glance, you think it’s similar to the size of Niagara Falls. Once you see it for a little bit though, you realize how wide the falls really are. They just keep going. And going.

Tonight we’re going to a rock bar to hear a Pink Floyd tribute at Zeppelin Old Bar in Foz, and then tomorrow we’re headed back for 3 days in Brasilia to say goodbye to our friends. It’s odd; the idea that we’re only spending 3 more days in our apartment, and have so many people to see, and things we haven’t done yet.
