Paraguay is quite proud of Itaipu Dam. On a visit, though, this is pretty much all we saw of the dam. And a very nationalistic video about its construction. While it’s cool to see, I’ve seen big dams before (Grand Coulee is in Washington, where I’m from). What they don’t tell you is that Itaipu Dam actually flooded waterfalls that rival the nearby Igazu Falls, which is rather disappointing.
