Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam. It's a hydroelectric dam on the Paraná River located right on the border between Brazil. It was an interesting tour and I got to see how the dam works and where Foz do Iguacu got most of it's power. The next day was the last before I had to leave home, so I wanted to do something more laid back. I first went to visit the Iguacu National Park. It was so beautiful and the trails were very easy to walk. I also got to see the falls from a much higher vantage point than before. To wrap up my trip, I went to visit the Astronomy Polo Casimiro Montenegro Filho. It's an observatory near the dam. I learned a lot about the galaxy and constellations. The shows were interesting and interactive, I really enjoyed learning. Overall, the falls are magnificent and I'd recomend seeing them to anyone who loves nature or just wants to see a beautiful sight.
