Change Yourself…Change The World

Pictures From Iguazu Falls (Brazil and Argentina)

Iguazu Falls, which should easily be one of the seven natural wonders of the world. I have never seen so many waterfalls in my life. It was one of the most beautiful places I have ever experienced, and I recommend that EVERYONE try to visit once in their lifetime.

There are two sides to Iguazu Falls (or ‘Foz de Iguasu’)- the Brazilian side, and the Argentinian side. The first day we saw the Brazilian side, and the second day we saw the Argentinian side. Here are all of the pictures from a trip with my friend Polina and her mother, Natalia.

Polina and Natalia on the bus in Brazil! Yay first time in Brazil!!

Portuguese. We’re definitely in Brasil.

The river leading off to a HUMONGOUS drop-off- Iguazu Falls, here we come!

One of the many pictures of butterflies in this album. I have never seen so many gorgeous, beautiful butterflies.

I love these two.

The wildlife here is intense.

Waterfalls everywhere

A butterfly happened to land on my face, which resulted in a series of amazing photographs.Thanks Polina.

Polina and Brittany, bffs. In italics.

Taking in the view…

THE ARGENTINIAN SIDE– the train ride up to the main waterfalls.

A bird stops and says hello.

The drop-off. It feels like this is the end of the world.

Remember when everyone thought the world was flat, and that everything just dropped off the side of the world? This is what that end of the world would look like.

The most massive waterfall I’ve ever seen in my entire life.

Water turns to white

Water- up close and personal.

Waterfall after waterfall after waterfall…

If you think these pictures are unbelievable, imagine what it must look like in person.

The wonderful thing about Iguazu Falls is that you see waterfalls up close and personal, in every way imaginable. From the top, from the bottom, right in front of it– it is an unbelievable, amazing experience.

Beautiful end to a beautiful day.
