Rio de Janeiro 2014, Botanical Gardens.

The Botanical Gardens, or Jardim Botanico, was one of my favourite places in Rio.  It's full of jungle-y trees and foliage and amazing animals, I saw monkeys, turtles and toucans here.  Toucans are pretty hard to spot, and saw 3 of them, flying from tree to tree for ages.  It was the best part of my holiday.  I even bought myself some toucan earrings to commemorate the day!  

I don't know anything useful, like the names of the plants, but I took lots of pretty pictures so here are some of them.

 I will be back with more holiday photos soon!
