South America Trip - Day 6

Day 6 – Tuesday 8/26
Today we woke up and ate breakfast and then got ready to leave Igauzu Falls. The original plan was for us to go see the Brazillian side of the falls, but we found out that we would see the same waterfalls as the day before but just from a different angle.

Instead, we asked Elio if he could take us to the massive Duty Free store we saw on the way to the border.
From there he took us to the Tres Fronteiras, the Three Frontiers, where Brazil, Argentina and Parguay meet. We were standing on the Brazilian side and looked across the river to the other countries. Each country has their own pyramid painted in their colors.

Elio then took us to eat at a local Brazilan BBQ place.

After lunch, we headed off to the airport. We came to find out that our flight was delayed about an hour. Darn! Eventually we were able to board our flight. In about a hour and 45 minutes, we landed in Buenos Aires.

We were then picked up and taken to our hotel in Puerto Madero. This was the nicest hotel we stayed in! It was very modern. Puerto Madero used to be the main port in Buenos Aires, but was abandoned in the 1980's. They recently turned all of the old port warehouses into restaurants, hotels and condos.

After we checked in and got settled, we headed out to grab some dinner. We walked around for while and finally decided on an Italian restuarant, Puerto Cristal. The boys had some beer while Yolanda and I shared some champagne!
