The morning started out well, aside from a mild hangover from too many Caipirinhas last night, I got up, packed, and was brought to the airport where my flight was on time and smooth, all the way to Foz do Iguassu, with a brief stop somewhere along the line.
Getting to the actual town of Foz do Iguassu sapped the rest of my strength. I decided to catch the local bus for $1 rather than spent $20 on a cab, but it started raining heavily before the bus came, and the bus was very full, and trying to juggle one large bag and one smaller but heavy bag was a challenge. I did mange to get someone to tell me the correct stop to get off at, but then I had another 20 minute hike in the rain before I got to the hostel. After I got here I struggled with the too-small locker under my bed, dripping sweat for several minutes until I figured out a solution. I had a small lunch as well, and being hungry didn't help. I finally got everything squared away, and then just sat in the hostel common area for a while to cool down before grabbing a fast nap. I managed to make it out to grab some food, I was going to find something fast, but then I saw a McDonalds and broke down and ate there. Brazilian restaurants sometimes don't open until late.
I am strongly considering spending a lot of money (about $800) to move to the hotel that is located right inside the park, a 5 minute walk away from the falls. I'm going to get some food and sleep and explore tomorrow and see how I feel then, but right now I'm just exhausted.
