I can´t believe what a small world we live in. On one of the days staying in Buenos Aires we took the ferry to Colonia (Uruguay) for the day, its a beautiful port town with small cobbled streets. On the ferry with us was a guy who went to the same high school as me a few years ahead of me and a group of his mates. They were very chatty and invited us to come out with them.
We then flew up to Iguazu falls in the north of Argentina… it is really beautiful place with 2.7km of waterfalls… breath taking!! In our same hostel was a fellow law student who also went to the same high school as me. We randomly arrived at the hostel at the same time as her and were able to meet up for beer drinking, smoking and crazy wild card playing. The falls are one of the most magnificent sights I have ever seen and you can view them from both the Argentinian and Brazilian sides. We also took a speed boat under the falls and I almost lost my backpack with our passports and all our money when I big wave knocked it out of my hand and down to the back of the boat. Thank goodness another passenger was able to catch it.
Other than that Buenos Aires offered interesting experiences including sleeping in a 12 person dorm which was mixed and had one particular dodgy guy in it who snored all night. The room itself was called the porn room because it was directly next to the porn movie theatre and so we heard the grunting and groaning all night. I even was able to discern some Spanish such as beuno (good) and si (yes) repeated continuously a couple of times so I suppose it was educational.
