Sun and Portuguese
Yesterday we visited the Jardim Botanico. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had fun on the bus listening to the locals and trying to decipher what they were saying on our way there. The Jardim as explained by our teacher Pablo was constructed by the Portuguese Royal family and it is a fantastic place to connect with nature. There are trails on which you can see all the local fauna and visit small waterfalls, look out for wildlife such as monkeys, turtles and squirrels and appreciate the ancient trees. We discussed in Portuguese the names of the different plants and animals and stopped for a coffee along the way to practice our skills. It was a great day filled with happy photo opportunities and I can´t wait to return.
