Foz do Iguaçu | Brazil

Foz do Iguaçu is a city in the state of Paraná. The city center has not much to offer, however a walk to get to know a typical rural area is always a good thing to do. I found some kiosks with very cheap fresh juices of various fruits and chicken/vegetable crockets and other snacks. Absolutely no tourist found around.

Two things I did in Foz do Iguaçu, both to charge myself with some of the energy of the wilderness and beauty of nature:

  1. Cataratas do Iguaçu

The waterfalls of the Iguazu river, which make a liquid border between Argentina (Misiones province) and Brazil (Paraná state). The Argentinian and the Brazilian side together make the largest waterfall system of the world. The strongest memory is that wild natural sound of the water that makes you feel cosmic only for being able to hear it.

2. Parque des aves

The largest bird park in Latin America. As you walk through the park you get to experience direct contact with more than 1300 birds from different parts of the world, including endangered species. Yes, I was looked in the eye by flamingos and toucans. This park has nothing to do with a zoo. They take care of birds that are no longer capable of living out in nature. They live free and happy.
