The main fall is Devil’s Throat, which is about 90 meters high (around 288 ft). It Is a beast. There’s a walkway that takes you near the fall, which is so powerful that the spray leaves you more drenched than Napoleon in “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”. I don’t remember what Niagara Falls is like so I can’t compare, but the scope and power of these falls is magnificent. I wonder how much energy can be harnessed by these powerful falls. On that note, I’m amazed at the brilliant scientists from back-in-the-day that thought it possible to harness and convert all that natural power. Incredible. Some people are so smart. Bastards.

As we walk the falls, we encounter a Greek-German woman who is excited to run into some people who speak English. At first, she’s so eager to talk, that I keep checking my bag to see if she’s got a partner who’s pickpocketing people. Don’t know if she’s working with Linus from Ocean’s Eleven. Turns out, she works for Mercedes Benz and has been sent to Argentina for work. She and a coworker are trying to catch some sites while in the area. She’s excited to find out we’re from Southern California, because she’s visiting for the first time in a few months. She says she can’t wait to go to Southern California and be away from Benzes. Good call. No Benzes in LA. We mention that we’re thinking about rappelling down one of the cliffs, and her co-worker mentions that it’s not worth it; that we should take the safari boat ride that goes underneath the falls instead.
