On our last full day in Brazil, we were guided to two exceptional sites.
A section of Itaipu dam with power lines. A joint project of Brazil and Paraguay, it is claimed to generate more power than any other hydroelectric installation in the world.
Toucan in the Parque de Aves bird park, just outside Iguazu National Park. It's a very fine facility.
Yesterday we took a long walking tour of central Rio and adjacent neighborhoods. The area approaching the Santa Teresa neighborhood has a profusion of decorated walls. Here's Elsa with one, though with tags rather than more decorative graffiti.
This morning we're flying from Rio to Iguassu, to spend three days at the falls. More to come.
