We then arrived at Caracol and took these beautiful pictures.
There is a set of 730 steps that go down the side of the mountain to get a closer look at the falls. We took the steps down and Heidi was the first one back up to the top, beating all the young Elders.
After returning to the top we hiked up above the falls to see some beautiful spots along the river.
For P-day this week we took the four Egberts and went to a town about 30 kilometers from Gramado called Novo Petropolis. It also have a very heavy German influence and has a park called the Parque Aldeia dos Imigrante. There is a rebuilt German village from the 1800's there where they try to show what life was like for the people living there.
We took a nice walk through the park to the village enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Then there was the Lutheran Church.
There was even a big spider by one of the pictures in the church.
Outside the church was a general store where they were selling some typical German bread and cakes.
We walked back to the park exit past more beautiful scenery.
We then took the Egberts to the park with the maze and we all found the center.
We see some beautiful sunsets here.
