St George's Exchange - Iguazu Falls
The weekend following our first email we went to Lollapalooza music festival. There were so many people there and the atmosphere was great! It was especially exciting because we knew many of the artists such as Cage the Elephant, the Strokes, the Weekend, the Chainsmokers, Vance Joy and Metallica. Everything was fantastic, from the music to the food to the friends around us.
The second weekend we went to the famous Iguazú Falls, situated on the three borders of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil, and saw the Devil's Throat. It was very beautiful and powerful imagery, and we saw many animals, such as coaties, butterflies, monkeys and even a caiman. On the first day we were there we went to the Devil's Throat, and on the second we walked the upper trail to the top of the falls, took a jungle tour through the rainforest and went in a boat to the bottom of the falls. It was wonderful.
On Easter weekend I did nothing much, I slept and ate and slept again, which was a nice recovery from the action packed weekends before, while Amritha went to Chile with her host family to indulge in some retail therapy. She went to the capital, Santiago de Chile, and in between the shopping sprees she also found the time to walk about the streets in Santiago and get a real feel for the city.
Overall this has been a great experience so far and we can't imagine leaving!
