A bit of a “photo-dump” today to get everyone up to speed on our last few days 😀 Enjoy!
Before we took off for Iguazu Falls, we had another lovely afternoon/evening exploring Buenos Aires:
First, we mistook a children’s orchestra concert venue for the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes…
Totally looks like a fine arts museum, right?!
Aw, well, a happy mistake 😀 we stuck around for a song or two and then snuck back out…
We found the BsAs mechanical flower – it blooms at sunrise and closes at sunset each day.
Then we found the real fine arts museum!
The next day we geared ourselves up for our 18 hour bus-ride to Iguazu Falls!
Apparently, this is a pretty common form of transportation around Argentina. It was surprisingly comfortable – reclining chairs, meals & drinks were served, movies were played – I was rather impressed!
As nice as that bus was – our hotel room was a sight for sore eyes 😀
A terrace facing the falls!!
Alas, this is the last of Connor’s free hotel points 😦 Gotta get that man back to work and travelling 😛
After checking in, we snacked on some of our goodies before setting out for a little bit of hiking…
A few muddy spots, aside, it was a very easy, enjoyable hike (good thing, because truth be told, we were both exhausted from that bus ride…)
Some pretty foliage 😀
After a solid evening of
Netflix binging resting and a great night’s sleep, we set out the next day to check out the real-deal falls:
Along the “lower trail…”
Connor trying to make friends with the local wildlife (in addition to monkeys, these coaties are really common – they’re like raccoons…)
The two of us along the “upper trail…”
After another 18-hour bus ride back to Buenos Aires (this time, it was admittedly harder all around :/), we grabbed some delicious pizza and beer and checked into our next airbnb spot:
Pizza portuguesa & Quilmes beer 😀
Our airbnb spot in Montserrat BsAs is phenomenal! If only we had been able to book this place for our first week here rather than just the two nights we’re spending in BsAs this time around…
Super comfy bed and the bedroom connects to the terrace too, so there’s just generally a ton of sunlight in this place!
Today we’re off to explore San Telmo and get our stuff all in order for our excursion to Patagonia tomorrow!
