My eyes are staring out the bus window, trying to capture the landscape that passes by. However, my mind is not helping in this task. Rather than processing and storing the images my eyes are seeing, my mind is elsewhere. My mind is thinking about whether or not I should even be on this bus ride. This bus is taking me twenty hours in the opposite direction. That is very far out of my way to see just one sight. My mind keeps going back and forth trying to decide if this is all worth it. Unfortunately, the only way to decide if this bus ride is worth it or not is to get there, see the sight, and then decide how I feel about it. I would say that all of this thinking is just a waste of time, but there’s not much else to do on a twenty hour bus ride.
The twenty hour bus ride took me to Iguazu Falls and thankfully the long ride was more than worth it. When walking to the falls, the noise of the water blasts through the air even before they come into sight. Once you can see the falls, it is a beautiful scene, unlike anything I have experienced before. With the rush of the falls in my ears and the sight of them all around, it was very hard to even think about anything else. It is difficult to capture a sight so grand as the falls, but here are a few of my attempts at it.
