My nights have been spent at home, but my days have been one of a tourist exploring the Gainesville area.
My sister Andrea and her husband, both from Brazil, have been our guests for the past week. Besides shopping intensively and spending time chatting over coffee at Starbucks, we have been visiting several sights around town, like Orlando and the amazing Itchetucknee river.
This Itchetucknee river is part of a gold medal state park, with amazing springs of prestine water. It's incredible to go tubing on the river, being gently carried by the slow current, surrounded by a spectacular and complex ecosystem. The canopy of ancient trees, the hawks, erons and eagles soar above us, as we lazyling lay on our tubes, comtemplating nature's beauty. The freezing cold water brings an welcome contrast to the super hot and humid temperature this time of the year.
We always have a wonderful time when we take each of our guests to the many area springs, and I hope one day to take YOU too.
