Babe in arms.

Look here for 2014.
Look here for 2013.
Look here for 2012.

Post Card from Curitiba - Farewell

Curitiba is amazing. Let me count the ways:

Atlantic rain forest vegetation:


Innovative design:

Good food:

 Barreado de Morretes

 Two in one pizza:  marguerita and banana/chocolate. 

Street art:

Good weather (OK, maybe not always):

 And really fine people. 
Muito obragada. 
Até logo.

Post Card from Curitiba - 18

I was very taken with the gardens and was especially pleased to see a fern tree. I had seen fern trees in the forest from the train.  I also spent some time watching the turtles.

I did also observe that for many people, the gardens were a beautiful back drop for selfies and more formally staged photo ops.
