I thought I'd give you a quick look at what I've discovered here in Brasilia. Overall, the city is pretty cool, though there isn't a whole lot to do once you'd done the "tourist thing". I've managed to keep busy and we have a few things more to do in the last couple weeks we're here, but I've spent more time working inside, then out and about.
Here's a few pics of things I've seen. I hope you enjoy them!
The National Congress Buildings - Very interesting design
The JK Memorial Building - Everything is underground.
The following pics are from the Brasilia National Park. We loved the time we spent there.
The Natural Spring made into a swimming pool. Just one of several in the park. Water is so very clear.
One of the park trails. We saw marmosets and many kinds of birds on this trail. This is the drier portion of the area. Very scrubby. A little way down the trail is a rainforest. Right next to each other. You take a single step and then you're in a different climate.
A family of coati! Very much like a USA raccoon.
This beautiful bird we saw on the walking trail. Awesome. Anyone know what it is? I've looked and can't find it online. Help!!!!
Brasilia has many things to see and do, and I hope you've enjoyed this brief glimpse. If the internet was better, I'd put up more pics, but I think you can see a little of what we've been able to visit while living here. Have a great week!
