S that is no time at all! We managed to get an early bus from Asuncion and we finally arrived in Brazil 7 hours later. Everybody told us that Brazil was going to be expensive and we noticed the difference straight away with us having to pay 14 pound a night for a shitty room which looked like it was in the middle of being refurbished.
Michelle was happy enough as they had three different beers that she has never tried before and could add the beer labels to her now huge collection, she must have tried near enough 70 different beers and I have tried them too and still not found one I like! As there was not much to go back for at the hostel we stayed out until around about midnight. The next day we went to Itaipu dam for a guided tour. The tour was very organised and we got to learn a lot of different things but when we went to see the dam it was just like any other but on a huge scale, as in a huge concrete wall stopping the water!
The dam has been voted as one of the 7 man made wonders of the natural world. It would have been impressive if we got to see the dam open but no joy, so had to just settle for the wall!
I gave some info about the dam in the Paraguay blog see below. In all the project has worked very well for both countries and I suppose it is a green way of getting energy. The downside of this project is that to build this dam they had to destroy lots of forest, move thousands of people and submerge Sete Quedas falls, the Paraguayan equivalent of Iguazu falls, many of the people that have seen these falls before the tragedy said they were even more impressive.
See pictures of Iguazu to get an idea of what the falls look like. Our last day in Foz we went to see the waterfall. This time our luck was a better than the wet of Argentina and we had a bright and sunny day.
