We had one full day in Brazil. We started it off at the Itaipu Dam, one of the 7 wonders of the modern world. It's a hydroelectric megadam on the Parana River that produces 35% energy for Brazil and 90% for Paraguay.
It was HUGE and I learned that the Parana River is one of the biggest in the world!
As we were driving along, we saw a city on the horizon and found out that it was Ciudad del Este-- one of the areas Joe served on his mission. It was this particular area where he was held up at gun point and shot at. I laughed and told him I'd take a picture from here because it was the closest we'd get with our family to that city :) There it is below:
Very cool to see. Apparently only 2% of Americans come to visit this place. We can stand a little taller now, knowing that we can claim a bit of that :)
