Another one for the bucket list: Las Cataratas de Iquazú (Iguazú Falls). A UNESCO World Heritage Site and called one of the new 7 Wonders of Nature, these are some of the most spectacular falls in the world. Only the Victoria Falls in Africa can compare in terms of size, although the Iquazú falls are wider and have more individual cascades.
All this to say, they were stunning. At some moments, I was surrounded by 260 degrees of waterfall. All senses engaged, I could feel the spray on my skin, hear the thunderous roaring of the cascades, and see the gorgeous rainbows created by the sun in the mist.
Next stop: Salta.
And finally, Córdoba.

|Capilla del Monte|
|Los Terrones Park|
fter the weekend, Flor and I headed out to Capilla del Monte, a small town outside of Cordoba that lies in the Sierras. We camped out in the tent for a night and did some unforgettable hiking in the cerros and rock formations of the Sierras de Cordoba.
So my first few weeks in Argentina have been busy and filled with beauty. Now I'm off to enjoy city life again in Buenos Aires!
