Foz de Iguacu

In order to get the best price on the plane flight I flew in a day early and left a day after the conference ended.  Due to arriving early I was able to go to both sides of the water falls.  I really enjoyed my time at both sides but I have to say that I liked the Brazilian side the best because you spent lots of time at the base of some of the largest falls.  The water falls are actually named as one of the new seven natural wonders of the world.

Enjoying the Foz

I wish that I could share with you the raw power that I felt while standing at the base of this glorious water fall.  The mist kicked up by the water fall was so heavy that we got pretty soaking wet just standing at the base.

You can feel the power of the Foz

There are something like 150-300 unique waterfalls which make of Foz de Iguacu depending on the water level.  Due to all of the different unique waterfalls the park offered many great viewing points.

Spectacular views

On Tuesday the entire conference went to the Argentina side of the water falls.  We were able to walk to a platform right above the Devil’s Throat waterfall.  It was amazing to be able to stand above the water fall and hear/feel the power of the water crashing over the edge.

The mist was unreal

The Devil’s throat is the highest of the water falls.

We also were able to walk along the edge of many of the water falls.  It was spectacular to be able to see all of the unique falls that we saw.

So many waterfalls

On the Argentina side of the water falls I brought up the end of the group so the picture below was often my view.

  1. Absolutely Beautiful! I have never seen anything like these falls! You were with a large group. How many missionary’s are with you? How many are in your town? I had no idea there would be so many. Looks like all different age groups. thanks for all of your updates! God has put you in a very special place!

  2. beautiful, breathtaking, the devils throat was appropriately named. loved your descriptions.
    so glad you connected with like minded souls at this conference and got to see some of the countryside as well. love you, mom

  3. Amazing, Benjamin. Fascinating to view God’s creation in different parts of the world. Uncle Don and I have been to Niagara Falks in both the US and Canada. I can relate to the raw power and spray and sound of the falls. Glad you were blessed by the conference. Love and prayer, Auntie Carolyn
