It's hard to believe our last full day in Foz do Iguacu came so soon! It's been a wonderful run we've had here full of great people. In the morning, let's face it: we were lazy. Sandra was good and went out for a run while Ian slept like a maniac. Blame the late night having some drinks with hostel management!
We checked out at the appropriate time in the morning, but then basically lounged around all morning until Jason dropped by to pick us up. Don't blame us, it's really hot outside! In that time, at least we managed to book our bus and a place to stay in Buenos Aires, so that's not bad, right?
We hopped over to the Argentinian side for empanadas (little fried dumplings full of wonder) and nice, big 1L bottles of freezy-cold beer. A friend of his named Hanaji dropped in to meet us as well. We wandered through the "little fair" (direct Spanish translation – just a nice open air market) and saw lots of olives and olive oil sellers. If you want to buy 4L of olive oil for 6 dollars, this is the place to do it.
Following up the meal we grabbed some dessert at Cremolatti. They have all sorts of marvelous ice creams, many of which are based on dulce de leite, the Argentinian caramel sauce specialty. We also walked by a travel agency I'd like to check out called "Turismo Dick". I wonder what kind of packages they offer.
Overall, 'twas a fitting evening to cap off our time here in Foz! Tomorrow we rock the 18 hour bus ride to Buenos Aires… wee?
