Thanks to Trees die standing up

  

The magestic alley Barbosa Rodrigues, the main entrance to the famous Botanical Gardens of Rio de Janeiro (founded by King D.Joao VI in 1808 and a fave also during the Empire) is indeed a most beautiful and relaxing place - once you start you day walking along it towards the Muses Fountain along the huge palm trees you feel a bit in paraside ... I could not help myself but look up at the neverending ancient trees (Palmeiras Imperiais - Imperial Palm Trees) which seemed to touch the sky : I would like to share with you all the wonders of this place (Unesco Biosphere Reserve) and ... take you for a stroll, even if only "virtual". Once again thanks to my dear brasilian friends, a tip for travellers ... and just ENJOY !
