Houses in Vargem Grande do Sul. Part 2: trees and bushes

Often whilst wandering around Vargem Grande do Sul I feel a bit like an alien might feel having landed on another planet, but a planet surprisingly similar to its own. Ok, before you say, ‘Obviously things are different, you’re in a different country!’, I just wanted to use the alien analogy, in part to make the text interesting for you to read, but also this is how I usually feel when wandering around an unfamiliar place with my camera, even when I’m home in the UK.

One thing that’s very noticeable are people’s front gardens, which are in effect patios, often with a garage. They’re usually tiled and have a few carefully manicured bushes, which are sometimes on the street itself, as part of the architecture, which I mentioned in the previous post.

Below are some examples of houses with trees and bushes.
