Celebrating a Year

I feel in need of an outing today, and Iziane suggests I walk to Parque Lage, not too far away. It is an amazing place– an Italian villa built in the midst of grounds that mix European formal structure– towers, fountains, stone arches– with the lush vegetation of the Atlantic tropical forest. It also seems to be a very popular destination this holiday Saturday, and is full of families picnicking, couples strolling, photo shoots for flamenco dancers, pregnant beauties, teen musicians. But there are also paths leading away from the centers of activity, and it feels like heaven to get away from the traffic and noise of the big city and just hang out with the trees for awhile. It’s a lovely peaceful day.
