Visit to Brazil

Post by Nigel » Mon Jan 27, 2014 12:47 pm

I visited the site of Butia sp florianopolis when I was in Brazil. Took some new pics as I lost my others.
Of all the Butias i have visited in various habitats, this for me is still the most beautiful and commercial of all of them.

I also visited Albertos garden in the mountains. He has stunning Parajubaeas and Parajubaea hybrids.

I think Nigel was in the South, quite a long way away from the Amazon.

I've been to the Peruvian Amazon and that was the highest quality forest I've ever seen. The other rainforests like those of Chiapas (Mexico), Costa Rica or the Brazilian Atlantic forest don't even come close in thickness, wildness and diversity, although they're all excellent icon_thumleft

You are very lucky Otorongo, I think i have some kind of obsession with the amazon. It just fascinates me every documentary/picture/article i seen on it. I really hope one day in my life i get to go there. :-)
