Beautiful image!  South America's equivalent to the Niagara Falls is a place that students should see.

This is quite the amazing photo. It expresses both the beauty and implacable power of nature. I am also amazed, yet never surprised, to discover the facility that was built on the edge of the falls, to offer the experience to all viewers. It is another model of human ingenuity.

I'm adding this to my list of places to go right away! I intend to visit most of the countries in the world in my lifetime, and this just happens to be on the border of two of them. It's a really cool sight even apart from its natural topography. It looks like the border is almost like a gap in the Earth itself. It reminds me a bit of how the Grand Canyon is a divide  close to the borders of Utah, Nevada, and Arizona.
