Leaving our hotel in Paraguay at 2:00 am wasn’t super fun but we arrived at the immigration office just five hours later. While we waited for our boat over to Iguazu Falls, Argentina we stared at the beautiful river from shore. The sunrise and the morning mist were truly magical. This is where Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil all join together.
When our ferry arrived we all hopped on very excited to see some of the largest waterfalls in the world. Tomorrow we would go to the park, but first we had to get our Brazilian visas. We left the consulate office with our passports stamped, explored the town and found a tourist office. After hearing about all the activities we decided that The Great Adventure boat ride was by far the best even though we were told “YOU WILL GET SOAKED”. The next morning we suited up, put on our life jackets and boarded the 9:00 o’clock boat. We traveled down the river for a while, as we got close to the falls our jaws all dropped in awe.
We entered Sri Lanka wondering if it could possibly be December 1st when it was 90 degrees outside. We drove to Kandy where we spent 2 wonderful nights in our own cabin above the lake.
We spent our first day at the botanical garden. Some of the trees in the gardens were 2 times older then America. The coolest part was the bat filled trees. There were hundreds of them hanging from the branches. It was awesome and creepy at the same time.
