Where in the World is Smokey?

Soaking up South American Culture

Jennifer Boyles is the business office manager for the University of Tennessee Space Institute. She has been with the UT Space Institute since 1987.

“I took a trip to South America in March-April 2009 and visited Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil,” she wrote.

The first photo was taken at Machu Picchu in Peru.

The second photo was taken at Devil’s Throat at Iguassu Falls in Argentina. Iguazu Falls are one of the world’s largest waterfalls. They extend nearly two miles in a semi-circular shape. Of the 275 falls that make up Iguassu Falls, “Devil’s Throat” is the tallest at 80 meters. The falls are on the border of Brazil and Argentina are surrounded by two National Parks, both subtropical rainforests that contain many rare and endangered species of flora and fauna.

“We took a boat ride under the falls, and we got soaked,” Boyles wrote. “What a blast!”

The third photo was taken on Sugar Loaf Mountain with Rio’s Copacabana Beach in the background.
