    Regardless your origin or ideology, Iguazu is worth the trip. Truly amazing piece of work by nature, and if your lucky enough and get the old ladies around to shut up, you could actually hear the water...

    “Bernard Weber said that New7Wonders is studying the feasibility of constructing museums of the New7Wonders of Nature and related theme parks around the world.” building theme parks & museums, kinda makes the idea seem pointless?. As its all about “Nature” why build?

    They are 82% in Argentine territory. Foreign tourist should be banned from the falls. Let them see them from “afar” on the Brazilian side.

    Well Tobias, not to hurt your “pride”, the best view i had (July 2001, I visited Iguacu falls), and many tourists (include argentines) from the Brazilian side.

    DUH! Fool... do you think I don't know that, why do you think I said it? The best overall view is the Brazilian side... because they basically don't have sovereignty over the falls, they are 4/5 in “argieland”.

    So I hope you enjoy them because you ain't going into the argie side if the new law banning foreigners from going into the falls passes.

    I heard a rumour that Brasil rejected Argentina's first choice to name them the General Belgrano falls!

    Come to the Brazilian side, it's far better than the Argentine side. Brazil knows how to develop a tourist industry not destroy one.
