Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

On our three week trip in South America, we had planned on visiting three countries – Peru, Argentina and Brazil.  When we arrived at our brief one night stopover on the Argentinian side of Iguazu Falls, little did we know that we could actually step foot in a fourth country.

Puerto Iguazu, the little town that is home to the Falls, is nestled in the corner of Argentina where Brazil and Paraguay meet.  Not much marks the spot where the three join, apart from a small brick structure, but of course we had to make a stop there, where we could view all three countries across the river.

In the space of 24 hours we had left Peru, landed in Argentina, stepped foot in Paraguay and passed into Brazil.  Four countries in one day was pretty good going!

Does Paraguay count as a new country to add to the list of visited destinations?  Probably not!  But it was a little something extra that definitely added to our over enthusiastic touristy excitement 🙂
