Our recent discovery of the beautiful Foz do Iguaçu
We arrived in Foz do Iguaçu in the early morning of the 27th of February. Once the Uber left us at the hotel, the staff was nice enough to let us do an early check-in. We took advantage of the room in order to catch up on sleep.
This was the best hotel we stayed in so far. We had a big and modern room and the backyard was amazing. It had sofas, tables, a shower and a lovely swimming pool with sunbeds on top. There were also power outlets all over the garden which was great as we were able to work outside. The Internet connection was much better in Foz do Iguaçu than in Rio too.
We spent the afternoon working and then went on to wander the streets of Foz do Iguaçu. These were packed with clothing shops due to Ciudad del Este in Paraguay which is close-by and much cheaper if bought in bulk. We ate a delicious Risotto Carbonara at an Italian restaurant and then went back to our hotel.
The next morning I had some calls to make and Chris also had to catch up on (a lot of) work. However, we stopped at around 11:00 in order to go visit the Iguaçu Falls. We got there by bus, around 20 stops from Foz do Iguaçu. The park was great, packed with exotic flora and fauna and we even managed to see some coatis. Coatis are animals that represent the symbol of the city. We took a lot of photos, passed by the Tres Fronteras (the point where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay meet) and went back to work.
Chris also made a funny discovery when he went to use the restrooms - there were two toilets in the same room!
We had two caipirinhas and were quite tipsy when we got back to the hotel. I told you Caipirinhas were strong in this country!
On the final day, we mostly stayed in and worked. However, we took a break to eat some amazing salads at a health shop nearby, UNION Saladas e Quitutes. This is a big secret in Foz do Iguaçu, so make sure you tell everybody!
