Photos from Iguazu Falls

We’re just back from a short holiday at Iguazu Falls, in the tri-corner border of Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina. We have also been to Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe / Zambia border. Although it was dry season when we were at Victoria, there is no comparison. Iguazu wins. Here are a couple of teaser pictures. If you would like to see the rest, visit the “photo gallery” link at the top of the column on the right side.

View through our balcony window of the main section of the falls. We stayed in the only hotel that is within the national park.

  1. Those are some beautiful images. My wife and I love to travel, and between perusing your photo gallery and reading The Travel Writing of Jame Salter, I especially have the itch of late.

    • Anything Salter writes fills the mind with goodies.

      I am trying to get more travel photos uploaded to that site. I also want to scan some of the old paper photos from travels pre-digital … like my old writing pre-digital.

      Touring is fucked, but traveling is one of life’s greatest treasures.

    • No. There are national parks on both sides. If you want to remain in Argentina, you could find a hostel or hotel in Puerto Iguazu, which is on the Argentine side. Where we stayed is mucho expensive, but has the enormous benefit of being within the national park (Argentine side), which means you can avoid the crowds … that is vitally important to me.

    • Kate, did you notice the reference to James Salter? If you are going to be a writer, you should read Salter, America’s finest living writer, to see what is possible. Try “A Sport and a Pastime” to see what can be done with voice and point of view.
