Day 2: On the Road in Rio

IMG_3717

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.
