    I had the great pleasure of visiting the Parque Indigena, located on the banks of the beautiful Arroio Maldonado. The images will be forever engraved on the memories photos but still more in my retina. I am grateful to Alejandra and Gonzalo, two specialists who are always willing to accompany those who wish to appreciate the place and its biodiversity of fauna and flora. It is possible to find magnificent examples of birds that chose the place to be their permanent or temporary home, in addition to the unique crab violinist. A sunset at Arroio Maldonado is an experience that all nature lovers should enjoy.
