Wow! Lx by hiker
I remember our trip to here very well. Our pilot thought he was flying in WW2 with some of his manouvers for us to see the falls from the air, on the way back we had to fly through a storm, the pilot strapped himself in with about 50 seat belts and I looked at our guide and he was sitting their praying making the sign of the cross, bloody frightening indeed! P.S. did the fish nibble your toes when you went swimming? by paulpry118
