017. Brazilian border
JUNE 2005: Brazilian border
In June 2006, I stayed in Ciudad del Este (Paraguay) for one day. The following day, I returned to Brazil. Again, I crossed the border on foot. Many local workers cross this border daily. I went to the customs, to obtain my visa. For me, it was special to cross another border on foot. Previously, I had crossed the borders between the Netherlands and Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, Germany and Luxembourg, the United States and Mexico, and Italy and Vatican City on foot.

FOZ DO IGUAÇU (PR)
June 2005. A short visit to Foz do Iguaçu, at the border with Paraguay and Argentina.
The bus ride went from Belo Horizonte to Curitiba, via São Paulo, lasting 14 hours.
From Curitiba, another – overnight – bus ride to Foz do Iguaçu, lasting 10 hours.
I arrived there at 8 AM and I first went to Ciudad del Este, crossing the Bridge of Friendship to neighboring Paraguay.
The second day, I spent in the Brazilian National Park of Foz do Iguaçu, and admired the magnificent waterfalls there.
On the third day, I went into Argentina and visited the Argentinean National Park of Puerto Iguazu, and approached the enormous Devil’s Throat.
On the final day, I visited the giant hydro-electric power station Itaipu, a joint construction of Brazil and Paraguay.
Three days of water and green, green and water, an unforgettable experience.
