After leaving the Santarém Market Place, I took Daniel over to the Dom Amando High School to say goodbye to some friends before he returned to Belém. The rain was still coming down hard and the sky socked in with low-moving clouds. I took advantage of my wait to take some pictures from inside the car. Through the splashes of rain on the windshield and the haze, I spotted an old friend down the street, a carnauba palm (Copernicia prunifera) located in front of the State Secretariat of Health building, SESPA. The silhouette of the tall palm was just beautiful.
