Poor Niagara! Meet the Iguazu Falls

On December 2008, Oddee’s crew went to one of the most amazing waterfalls in the world. Located on the border of the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentine province of Misiones, the waterfalls of the Iguazu River consists of nothing less than 275 falls along 2.7 kilometers (1.67 miles); the most impressive of all being the Devil’s Throat, a U-shaped 82-meter-high cliff.

It has been said that, when US First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt visited the falls, she exclaimed “Poor Niagara!”That was our impression as well. While the falls can be reached from the two main towns on either side of the falls (Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil, and Puerto Iguazú in the Argentina), We went to the falls by the brazilian side and took some of the best pictures we could. Meet the Iguazu Falls.

The wind, the water drops. Standing on the walkways, right in front of the falls, is one of the most amazing sensations you’ll ever experience.

Vertigo. The elevator lets you see the whole picture: the walkways, the river, the falls
