384: Pink roses
When you live in the megacity of Rio de Janeiro, it is really a relief to be in a small, neighboring city for some hours. You will fully enjoy the tranquility of few people and few cars in the streets, the ability to walk around without the chance being hit by fellow pedestrians or cars. When I was in Petrópolis, I walked there a lot, also along the canals of Avenida Koeller, Rua da Imperatriz, and Rua do Imperador. You can find many interesting big houses, constructed during the imperial era, along theses canals. Along another canal, you can visit a brewery and taste a fresh beer. It was along one of these canals that I found three beautiful, bright pink roses, as seen in the photograph.
