A graffiti I saw from our moving car, while we were entering Brazil from Paraguay.
When I was arriving at Foz do Iguaçu, the dense vegetation of this Brazilian city impressed me.

The Iguaçu Falls are located on the border of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. They consist of approximately 257 individual falls over 2.7 km (1.7 mi). I took this photograph at Foz do Iguaçu National Park, in Brazil. The view is about the biggest fall at the park.
The name “Iguazu” comes from the Guarani or Tupi words “y” , meaning “water”, and “ûasú “, meaning “big”.
There is a Guarani legend of a deity planned to marry a beautiful woman named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In a rage, the deity sliced the river, creating the waterfalls and condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.
The first European to record the existence of the falls was the Spanish conquistador Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca.
