the poor devil's throat
this waterfall has the same name as the more famous garganta del diablo at the iguazu falls. which reminds me, i don't i've even looked through the photos i took there on the argentinian side. anyways, whilst the destination was nowhere near as spectacular, the journey there was a lot more fun. the path followed the stream of water to the cascada, however the path frequently stopped as the winding stream zig-zagged around. this meant that there were only two options for progressing, wading through the knee-high water or jumping over it. of the ten people i was with, everyone chose the wading option except for me. in fairness my height and footwear made it easier to jump, but it was also a lot more enjoyable. i began to treat it like a playstation puzzle game - approaching each section i assessed where the narrowest pass was coupled with the optimum launching pad. i didn't manage to finish the game with completely dry feet, but i'd like to think that my dry legs meant i completed the level.
