Favorite thing: One day in the botanic Garden is a cool chance for you to learn about Nature, simply to walk with someone you love, or you can use that day with deep meditation. The Botanic Garden is there will make you learn about many different kind of plants and eco-systems. This one is called COROZO, it is a sort of palm tree found in the Amazon Forest, it has long and painful thorns, it is a way that the nature found to protect its precious fruits from predators.

We have palm trees like COROZO as well, it is quite common in the forests of Rio.

The nuts are very simular to our famous Guaraná
