There is no doubt I have finally “tasted” the rainbow.
I have no words for the experience we had here at Iguazu falls. This is one of those times that a picture cannot duplicate the magical place we saw. I had a hard time accepting that fact when we were there as not one picture I took looked as good as what was right in front of me. I felt like this place was not real. We saw so many rainbows, and the soothing sound of the falls was a constant reminder of where we were. Best view I have ever had while eating lunch on the little dock. I mean, who can beat all those rainbows in your view?
Taylor also talked me into going repelling. I did not want to go when we were there, but we had already bought our tickets. Sigh. We were both scared out of our pants, and I wasn’t sure if these ropes would actually hold us up. Of course they did. We were glad we overcame our fear of heights at least for a short time.
Did we really have to come back?
|I certainly got my fix of Guarana while I was here, & look at that avocado! Three times as big as we have them in the states. I was very jealous.|
|I tried Pastel’s, which ironically are the same things as Pastie’s in England.|
We had such a good time at our first place in Brazil. We were able to spend time with one of Taylor’s companions and his family that Taylor knew pretty well as well. We went to the Campinas Temple, and it was very beautiful. We had a fun relaxing time here, and it really is a beautiful city.
Here are some photos I took of Alison for her graduation pictures. The more I look at these, the more I can’t believe how beautiful she is. She is one of my friends that I am so glad I made. We became real & good friends fast, and those are hard to find. I can talk to her about anything, and I can hang out with her for hours and can’t wait to see her again. She is one of the most kindhearted and sincere people I know. I am so lucky to have her as a friend. Thank you so much for letting me take your pictures Alison, and I want to be friends with you always always.
