The digestive walk leads us through the town of Puerto Iguazu to the border triangle “Tres fronteras”. From Puerto Iguazu in Argentina, you can look over to Paraguay and Brazil. The view is terrific and the idea of only having to cross the river to land in Brazil or Paraguay is quite impressive. Local children are wandering around the viewing platform and try to sell small potted plants to the tourists. There are several souvenir shops on the edge of the platform, which I visit one by one while Christian is busy shooting photos.
After the walk to the border triangle and Christian’s obligatory “I-was-here-photo”, we walk back to the city, where we find the next good restaurant for dinner. Pasta is on our list for our first night in Puerto Iguazu in Argentina – and take-away, please! Tonight, there is going to be a small concert in our hostel. A local band plays Argentine rock songs while the hostel staff and their guests listen to the music in a relaxed atmosphere and Christian and I eat our pasta. After less than 5 minutes, however, the electricity in the entire street fails and we sit there in the dark. The Argentines cannot be disturbed, which may also be due to the fact that power outages are common practice here, and give out candles. The singer starts with his next song and the audience enjoys the atmosphere in the candlelight. After a while, we leave the concert and go to sleep, because tomorrow we have a full program. Waterfalls, here we come!
