We had all planned to leave today, but because there are only two buses that go to Obera each day, and we have already missed one of them (and we'd really like to go to the geode mines in Wanda) we decided to stay.
Keren is leaving this afternoon, so we spent the morning walking around town, looking at shops, enjoying the day. It has been so hot and muggy in Iguazu compared to home, and the clouds have been welcome!
Kayla, Keren, and I found the Brazilian market, full of olives and dried tomatoes, sausages,and meat dripping on grills, and decided to return later for lunch. It was a bit off the beaten path, and packed with locals, so we knew it would be good.
and some of my favorite wild leaves I saw... aren't they beautiful?
Looking over two rivers (Rio Parana and Rio de Iguazu) from one tip of Argentina, you can see Paraguay on the left and Brazil to the right. So cool!
There were people of native descent making and selling various artistic goods there to tourists...
On our walk we also saw tiny flowers hanging on trees in bloom:
and this ginormous tree that we nearly missed had Kayla not seen it hiding behind this store! I wonder what kind it is...
Our lunch was lovely, consisting of a big plate of stewed squash and meat.
