On the Rio Iguaçu
Photo taken by Hernán.

Back in 2000 I took a two-week vacation in Argentina. One of the places I visited was the Iguaçu Falls on the border with Brasil. We took a boat ride out to see the Garganta del diablo or “Devil’s Throat”, the largest cataract of the falls.

Upon seeing Iguazu, Eleanor Roosevelt reportedly exclaimed "Poor Niagara!" Iguazu is also often compared with Southern Africa's Victoria Falls which separates Zambia and Zimbabwe. While Iguazu is wider because it is split into about 270 discrete falls and large islands, Victoria is the largest curtain of water in the world. Iguazu currently has the greatest average annual flow of any waterfall.

Iguacu falls was the only place we did not go in Argentina last March. I went just about everywhere else! :)

Very handsome photo there. I had been wondering what color your beard was before it was gray...

I like the gray beard better!

That picture was taken nearly 10 years ago! I am grayer and a little less rotund now.
