Sunday in the park with TWFEB

While everybody else was watching the big game(s) this afternoon, I took a break from work to go for a walk.

It's March, so everyone is back from vacation and the city has filled back up again. But Sundays are always different from the rest of the week. It's possible to walk around without getting too jostled, and to breathe deeply without getting a lungful of bus exhaust.

I walked about an hour to Recoleta, the city's wealthiest neighborhood. It was great to see that even as leaves start to fall, some things are blooming.

Trees full of these flowers were in the park right across the street from the park that holds the stainless steel Floralis Generica sculpture. The petals of this sculpture are open during the day and then close as night falls.

As always, you can click on the photo for the full-size version.
