RALPH MOTOHASHI'S TRIP TO SOUTH AMERICA

Ralph Motohashi sends us 4 montages with him and his wife Yuki, from his latest trip to South America.

Brazil:
Rio : the 2024 Carnival was spectacular. Most of the parades start around 10 at night. They would keep going until early morning 6 am.
Brazil has some wonderful spots to enjoy. Just to name a few Brasilia, Sao Paulo, Rio beaches, Salvador's Africa culture & Manaus.
If you want to travel, you can not go wrong with Brazil. 
 
Buenos Aries:
Maybe their economy is not on a high note. But most commoners will carry on as best and as happy as they can. The steaks are great and cheap. You can have steak dinner every night and it won't sent you to the bank for a loan to pay for them.  Beside the capital you can also enjoy the wonderful Iguazu water fall near by.
 
Iguazu water fall:
Claimed as one the top three water falls in the world. I only went to Niagara falls before. I would say our own is larger then Iguazu. Does anyone know? Please let me know. But Iguazu Park is quite enjoyable with the beautiful birds flying over you. Monkeys play among the trees, an ant eater is digging the ground just next to your foot and little train running back and forth in the park carrying all the happy tourist looking for some good time.
 
Santiago, Chile:
It was a surprise to see Santiago' s shopping mall in the middle of the city. It is a huge mall with anything you can imagine to buy. The mall is housed in the newest and tallest building in Santiago. Normally you would see a lot of homeless sleeping in Rio streets and Buenos Aries streets. But I tried very hard to find them without any luck. Maybe because they have copper mine to help them carry on in this economy down time. If you like seafood & burgers please go to Santiago. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
