Parque Olhos D'Água
Where Brasilia Goes to Bronze
Brazilians and beaches go together like cachaca and lime. Just because Brazil's new capital moved inland in the 1950's doesn't mean that it's inhabitants don't still crave the vitamin D and the spandex. This ecological park, just on the edge of town, charges a small entrance fee, but welcomes picnic lunches and all day lounging. The springs is icy cold, but the sun is hot and after a run on the parks jogging trail it is just the recipe to cool down.
