Colors of savanna
This past weekend I took friends to Alter do Chão, where we visited the Escola Floresta, a school of environmental education operated by the Municipality of Santarém. This center was inaugurated just a few days ago and I was anxious to see the place. From one of the thatched roundhouses I spotted these new leaves presenting a show of colors. I compare these biological events to orchid flowers. They can be stunning.
