While I was in Brazil, I went to various parks. This one is the “Jardim Botânico” (Botanical garden). It has a greenhouse that keeps the plants from being damaged by the low temperatures in the autumn and winter.
This park has a lot of places to walk and a big lawn for picnics.
The other park that I visited in Brazil was the “Parque Tanguá” (Park Tanguá).
It has lots of fountains and spaces with water.
In this park there is also a waterfall, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to go see it. I loved to going here!
The penultimate park that I went was the “Bosque Zaninelle” (Zaninelle Wood). It used to be a quarry a long time ago, but now they turned it into a park. This is the entrance of the park. Super cool!
To see the part of the park where the quarry was located you have to walk on this trail in the middle of theses trees and plants. It was very humid in there but very beautiful.
Here is where the quarry was located! This park doesn’t have much to offer, but the nature there is amazing! It also has a lovely lake.
I really loved to going here and spending some time admiring this incredible view!
The last park that I went to was the “Bosque do Alemão” (German Wood). It’s a park to celebrate the German immigration. It also has a forest where you can walk and read the story of Hansel and Gretel (this story is called "João e Maria" in Portuguese).
At the end of the day after exploring all of these parks, we passed by a long street that had these typical autumn trees which lose all their leaves in the autumn. Since that day there wasn’t many leaves left, my host gave me a leaf that she collected a little while ago so I could glue it in my journal.
