Welcome to green, greener and greeniest:ish.. A few days back me and Gerson visited this beautiful botanic garden ”Jardim Botanico” in Rio de Janeiro, it’s just a 15 minute bus drive away from the southern beaches (Ipanema, Copacabana & Leblon). Here you can stroll through big avenues of palms, visit beautiful ponds full of exotic fishes (for a swede) or just sit down on a bench a relax for a second.
The place was full of exotic plants and flowers.
In a grove full of bamboo trees, visitors had carved their names, showing who they loved. At these drinking fountains scattered all over the park you could take a break to stop your thirst. Myself, I bought a stilled water bottle from the shop since the water from these tasted just like the water from a swimming pool (chlorine).
Take care! /Erik
