Iguacu Redux

I never did find the cord for my camera, but realized I could put the photos onto a cd (I know, I am a little slow!)

Here are some of my favorite shots:

Getting wet.

I captured a rainbow in this one.

Breathtaking.

Itaipu Dam--still the largest in the world until China finishes its newest.

Enough said.

I mentioned that I had a run-in with a coati (pronounced in Portuguese coh-ah-CHEE). They are also called “hog-nosed coons” “crackoons” and “snookum bears.” I call them scary buggers. We had been hiking for a couple of hours and stopped to get some cookies and a drink. I saw some signs warning people not to feed the coatis and that they could be dangerous–although they look cute, I discovered they have rows of sharp, dangerous teeth! I put the package of cookies on the table for a microsecond, and Mr. Coati leapt on the table and dashed off with it in his teeth, scattering cookies as he went. Here is one of the scoundrals:

  1. You have opened a vast new horizon for me with your blog, Barbara. I savor you sights and experiences: the next best thing to being there. Thank you.
