My Trip to Brazil

In July 2002, I traveled to Brazil to attend a conference held near Florianopolis, located on Santa Catarina Island, just off the southern coast of the country. After the conference, I spent a weekend visiting Iguacu Falls, a truly spectacular natural wonder. There are links at the bottom of this page to additional pages with many pictures of the falls.

Clicking on any of the pictures below will open a bigger version of the same image.

The Brazil-Argentina border runs through the gorge
on the left. The rest of the fall are in Argentina.

Both of the picture collections that are linked below include pictures taken from three perspectives: during a boat trip on the river, while walking along the edge of the gorge on the Brazilian side of the river, and from walkways built out over the river on the Argentinian side.
