  • I have a lot of the trails. Maybe it's the time of year hear (that should apply to the Botanical Garden) but you see is green around you. Logical, sure ... But nothing of variation. No gaps to be of any views. No, only paths (sometimes also free style but all is well to do) with trees and ferns around you. Animals I did not expect but so good to know: those don't you see.

No it does not.
