Crossing the Brazilian border

Brazil home of the bikini, the Brazilian wax,  capoeira and some of the best soccer players in the world. We were extremely excited to visit Brazil. We only wish it was easy for us to get there.  The crew went trough a lot of trials.

It all started in the Misiones province, Argentina. We used a bus company named CATA International. The company was awesome, they treated us well. We just took them on uncharted roads. The picture below is one of the buses getting stuck in the mud. It took us about an hour to get the bus out.

The Picture below is the Iguazu River. The river is connected to the Iguazu falls. Starts at the falls and flows into Argentina. The Iguazu falls is one of the new seven world wonders of nature.

Before going to Brazil, we stopped by the Iguazu falls on the Argentinian side. I was unable to take photos of the of the falls due to not wanting my camera getting wet. The pic below is brought to you by brazil bookers. We when were at the falls, we took a boat tour. It was amazing, unfortunately I had my mouth open. Ended up swallowing two mouth fulls of water. This was when I got sick.

We crossed the border into Brazil after waiting for an hour. Once in Brazil, you can tell the difference in the soil. The Brazilian soil has a more Orange tone to it. The soil looked more fertile compared to Argentina’s. During our first day in Brazil, one of the buses’ battery died on a train track. The train was running at full speed, there was no time to get of the bus to evade the train. Luckily, the train’s conductor saw the bus and stop just in time. The picture shows the scene after the train stopped.

Once the whole train episode was settled, we went to change the battery of the bus. In the process, one of the bus drivers got acid into his eye. Unfortunately, he lost vision in that eye. I wish much fortune to this bus driver. This is why I highly recommend CATA international. They did so much for us and they went the extra mile.

  1. Brazil is on my short list. I would love to see carnival but I also want to immerse myself in the general culture. There are SO many awesome places to see. It’s a good thing that people blog about their trips because there is no way to possibly see them all. It helps to live vicariously 🙂
