Today, we left Rio and took a short flight to the national parks that surround Iguazú Falls on the border between Argentina and Brazil.

Tonight we are staying on the Argentine side. We arrived mid-afternoon and had time for a brief walk down from our hotel to the falls.

I apologize for the roughness of this video, but the jungle sounds (recorded from the balcony of our hotel) were too much fun to keep to myself.
