Change of continents and 8 flights

Thought for the day…”The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist expects it to change, the realist adjusts the sails”

” You cannot live a positive life with a negative mind”.

Eight flights and a lot of airports separate the photos in the last post from the photos today.   A change of continents, or rather regions, from the Seychelles to Brazil.  Having flown from Seychelles via Abu Dhabi, Berlin, Oslo, and Sao Paulo (plus some domestic flights) then Oslo airport (code OSL) rates as the worst.   It is a disgrace for a Scandinavian capital city airport.   But leaving all that behind, some photos from Brazil….Brazil is the largest country in South America and the largest Portuguese-speaking country in the world.  It was named after the Pau Brasil tree, and now has a population of around 202 million.   It has won the football world cup more times than any other nation.  Although Brasilia is the capital, Sao Paulo is the largest city, with a population of around 18 million.

The photos are of the waterfalls at Iguazu, on the corner of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay.   Depending on the season, the falls can be up to 2.7km long, and up to 82m deep.   The photos were taken from a helicopter, but if you visit Iguazu be very careful NOT to book on the larger 7 seat helicopters, as several passengers who have to sit on the inside seats will have very restricted views.  No problem from the smaller 4 seat helicopters though, as the photos below show.
