It took long hours to decide which couple was going to pay for the late afternoon ice cream. They played several hands of briscola, exchanging secret signs, smashing cards on the towel, bursting up in collective laughs and kissing. Sweet, tender, smooth, long kisses, as long as the time a wave, born under the spell of a distant storm, takes to die on a sunny sandy beach.

Iguazu – the WATERFALLS

October is usually a great month for visiting Iguazu: rainy season in the Amazon is almost over and a huge amount of water reaches the Falls.

The water roar covers the jungle sounds and amazes the National Park visitors, stunned by the view and the fearless flights of the Great Dusky Swift. Waterfalls are everywhere, but the not-to-be-missed highlight is the Garganta del Diablo: a C shaped front that can be seen from a terrace built on the very edge.
