Posadas to Paso de los Libres

We are making our way south from Iguazu to Montevideo, Uruguay. The weather has been in the 90s and today we had another six hour bus ride with no air conditioning. Luckily we were carrying lots of water. I don’t think I have ever sweated as much as I have the last two days.

I think we are in Argentine Gaucho (cowboy) country now. We saw a gaucho today and have seen several stores with horse and riding gear. The terrain looks kind of like Wyoming or the Australian outback.

After arriving in Paso de los Libres we cooled off a while at the place we are staying and then walked several blocks to the town center where we had pizza and cold beer for dinner and bought more water for tomorrow. They had a special insulated holder on our table for the liter bottle of beer that we shared.

Iguazu to Posadas

We had a lovely morning. We hiked the lower forest trail again to enjoy some of the Iguazu waterfalls.

We also saw lots of monkeys,

and coates. There were a lot of coates trying to steal people food. They were really pests.

When we got back to the hotel we went for a quick swim in the pool before checking out.

Our afternoon was not so good. We took a six hour bus ride from a Iguazu to Pasados. The temperature was in the 90s and there was no air conditioning on the bus.

All is good this evening. We are in our air conditioned hotel eating empanadas from the local grocery store.
