Trip: Mato Grosso + Foz Iguaçu

I´d like to share pictures taken during our trip in January 2009. Our first stop was Cuiabá in Mato Grosso, Brazil. It was a 12-hour-trip by car. The temperature was milder than usual, it was 25°C. We visited friends and also traveled to Chapada dos Guimarães in order to take the kids to the beautiful waterfalls there. Second stop: Tangará da Serra. We lived in Tangará da Serra for 10 beautiful years when my children were born. We visited friends for 3 days.

Third stop: Foz do Iguaçu (Paraná - south of Brazil). We had to sleep somewhere in the midle of the way but got to Foz do Iguaçu after 17 hours driving. The city is on the border of Brazil/ Paraguay/ Argentina. It´s the second city with more foreigners in Brazil and has wonderful places to visit: Itaipu dam, Iguaçu falls, the borders, a Mosque, a Budhist temple and many more. As a whole we travelled about 4,000 km in 9 days. Yes, Brazil is huge!

Hope you enjoy the pictures I´ve added to this voicethread.

Nice, Anamaria! Thank you for sharing! I viewed all the photos (love those waterfalls!) and listened to some of your recording; bookmarked for another day to enjoy again with a cup of tea.

Thanks again for taking the time, making the effort -- hopefully you'll inspire me to do similarly.
