Day 16: Iguazu

After a loooooooooong bus ride of 18 hours we finally arrived in Buenos Aires. It was a pretty boring ride, because the scenery was boring and all the same.... unfortunately.
We did get dinner as a surprise, we didn't know when we booked. Of course it wasn't vegetarian, but there was some bread for my dad!

When we arrived at Buenos Aires we had to take a taxi to the smaller airport (Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Newbery). From there we had to take the plane to Puerto Iguazu and a taxi to the hotel. The taxi ride was pretty and I tried to have a conversation with the driver in Spanish. Went ok-ish :P

Then we arrived at our hotel (Cabañas Panambi). Really nice people working there and Carlos (the chef and helper) asked if we wanted to eat at their place tonight. He needed to know, so he could do groceries. We set a time for 19:30 and were excited about the nice dinner we were gonna get. It was going to be a surprise!

The little cabin has an amazing view over river Parana and Paraguay! It's bloody hot in here, but I love it! Bird tjeerping, crickets cricking (is that a word?), the water streaming, frog in the house and of course my worst enemy; the mosquito.

After settling in we went with a collectivo (public bus) to Hito tres fronteras. The point where the river divides 3 countries; Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. It was a very touristy place, but it was nice to see. Bought some bracelets there. And tried to explain the lady that was selling the bracelets, that the Paraguayan flag is similar to the Dutch flag. But she didn't understand me haha

Then we tried to get back to the hotel, but that wasn't that easy haha We waited for an hour for our bus and had to switch bus stops (as far as you can call it that). But this guy Omar helped us and we tried to have a conversation, but his English was poor and my Spanish is still not that good. But it went ok haha

When we came back to the hotel, Oscar had the dinner almost ready. It was an amazing dinner! Lots of vegetables and a good salad!

Tomorrow exciting day! Hope the busses will work a long this time!
