Salto Do Yucuma is over 1 mile and 1/8 long--the longest waterfall in the world. We went here in late May with some visiting Americans.

We are back home as of today, from our five week stay in the U.S.. We had an awesome time!!! I am going to include some pictures here of some places we visited before we arrived in the States June 18th (Salto Do Yucuma and Rio de Janeiro).
