Day 2: On the Road in Rio


This morning we woke up to more rain and clouds.  Since we weren’t able to go to the beach, we decided to head over to Parque Lage, a public park area that sits at the foot of the Corcovado in the shadow of Christ the Redeemer above .  Inside this preserved tropical forest is a quiet English garden and an old palazzo, built by Henrique Lage  for his wife.  This impressive mansion was later turned into a public area where you can sit and have lunch in the courtyard while enjoying the view.
