Let your soul be satisfied
with the odd beauty of this landscape
that although the world walk in truth
you'll never find, like this, nothing.
Good and bad, dynamic and changing
find here, from its name,
keep in your heart of man humble
a true and consistent message
Meditate and feel the deep emotion
contemplating the vibrant climax
eternal mist that is circled.
And do not try to describe it in your voice
only he leans his forehead against the abyss
is the mirror of the word God.
~ Alfonso Ricciutto
Yesterday, although it was raining heavily I decided that I just had to see Devil's Throat Falls, which is the largest falls in Iguazu. To get there I had to walk about 15 minutes from my hotel to the Cataratas train station. Here you hop on this small train (which is free) to this drop off point. From here I had to walk along the metal catwalk which was about 30-40 minutes or so because it was really slippery in the rain.
As I got closer, I could sense something very special. Well, I could hear it too! :) Garganta del Diablo was letting me know that I was about to see something that I have never seen before. And Garganta is right.
I simply have no words to describe what I saw so I thought I would allow Alfonso Ricciutto and my video to do it for me.

Today, I will catch a flight back to Buenos Aires. And tomorrow I really have to do some laundry, catch up on my blog and then get ready for my La Boca Jr. Soccer game tour. I was sent an e-mail with instructions on what colors not to wear as they are the opposing team's colors. I'm pretty excited about the experience and am glad that I am going with a tour guide.
I want to say thank you very much to everyone who have read my blog and who have commented. I'm sorry that I haven't had a chance to comment back regularly but I do appreciate your kind words...Annie, Sandra, YTSL, Marta and my twitter friends Girasoli and Maya and to everyone who follow me. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying your long Holiday weekend.
