Parque Hundido

I get a two hour lunch break every day, from 2 to 4. I normally go to the gym for an hour to an hour and a half, then eat my lunch at my desk while I update my blog, write emails, or read the news. But last week the other intern, Elena, started, so now I have someone I can do things with during lunch.

I lifted weights quickly then we took of to Parque Hundido, which means the sunken park. It is a little below street level. It was about a mile and a half walk from our office.  Elena's taxi driver that morning had talked it up to her and said we should check out the beautiful flower clock. We were really excited to find the clock and were disappointed when we got there:

Not even a single flower! Our coworkers said they had never seen it like this and guessed that they were changing the flowers out. 

Well, even though we didn't see the flower clock with actual flowers on it, it was nice to get into some green space in this sprawling city. Maybe we'll head back in a month and see if its any different.


  1. What a great place! What's the last photo of?

    1. Not sure! There weren't signs. I think its a replication of some ancient art.
