Blogging from A-Z: Letter W




It is WEDNESDAY and we do the letter “W”


Follow-up of Victoria Waterfall.

Opvolg van Waterval


1971: My first ride in an aeroplane! My sister and I visited South  America. We had an awesome time there. One of the highlights was the trip to Iguazu and the Iguazu Falls.

I took the following photos. They are not the best but they are precious to me. I took them with a Kodak asthmatic camera. The photos are slides that I copied onto my computer.

At the hotel, they had these very tame parrots. We did not trust them at all!

Waterfall from the aeroplane.

Iguazu Falls are located where the Iguazu River tumbles over the edge of the Paraná Plateau, 23 kilometres (14 mi) upriver from the Iguazu’s confluence with the Paraná River.[1] Numerous islands along the 2.7-kilometre-long (1.7 mi) edge divide the falls into many separate waterfalls and cataracts, varying between 60 to 82 metres (197 to 269 ft) high. The number of these smaller waterfalls fluctuates from 150 to 300, depending on the water level. Approximately half of the river’s flow falls into a long and narrow chasm called the Devil’s Throat (Garganta del Diablo in Spanish or Garganta do Diabo in Portuguese).[1] The Devil’s Throat is U-shaped, 82 metres high, 150 m wide, and 700 m long (269×492×2,297 ft). Place names have been given also to many other smaller falls, such as San Martín Falls, Bossetti Falls, and many others.
