Beauty

There is so much beauty around us. Most of us tend to take all of this beauty for granted. We all have busy lives; and our rushed, on-the-go lifestyle is what takes away time for us to step back and simply appreciate the world we live in.

Regardless of how busy life may be, I like to take a few hours off at times, whether alone or with a friend, to appreciate life.

Yesterday went just as so. A friend and I decided to take a few precious hours of our time to explore a place already too familiar to us; but beautiful every visit.

Here are just a few moments from this excursion.

Iguazú Falls, Misiones, Argentina

My trip to Misiones was undoubtedly the most beautiful excursion I had ever embarked on.

We visited caves, mines, gardens, and wildlife preserves. We stood on a hill and were able to see the lands of Brazil and Paraguay all from Argentina.

The falls were incredible. No, they were more than that. Mesmerizing. Captivating. Enthralling. You might think a few pictures does enough to capture the beauty of a World Wonder. Or maybe a video does the trick. But neither do. The sight of La Garganta del Diablo (The Devil’s Throat) was without a doubt the most beautiful sight I had ever seen.

We were bundled by the bridge suspended just above the 80 kilometer fall, awed at the continuous fall of water, the deafening sound of its fall. The experience was like no other. With butterflies dancing around me wherever I looked, I stared at that waterfall for a long time. Enough time to bore my eyes into it, feeling as though I were the water itself: falling, crashing, spewing misty droplets up into the air, again and again and again.
