- A varied and exciting trip to two countries which were so totally different, Buenos Aires more restrained and Rio de Janeiro more brash. Would have liked a little longer in Argentina as I felt as if I'd left before I even realised it! Loved the elegance of BA, the main sights of Rio - especially Christ the Redeemer. Even with all the tourists around it still seemed so special. Also loved the simplicity of the statue itself. Other highlights must include Iguazo Falls, from both sides, and being drenched as the boat went under the Falls themselves. The bird park on the Brazilian side was special for me. Fantastic weather helped. Some good food too!The restaurant at the Malba in BA, Pan Devino in Parraty, (the BEST meal of my trip), a little cafe in Ilha Grande and , of course, the steak in BA. Glad I went!!
