It’s bad manners to keep a vacation waiting…
These giant lily pads are back in town
Who: One for nature lovers.
What: After a ten year or so hiatus, the victoria cruziana has reappeared in the Salado River. These lily pads were declared endangered with one of the causes being tourists fishing them out of the water. They grow up to a diameter of more than five meters and bloom for only 48 hours at a time. For a chance to see them up close, the town of Piquete Cue has started offering boat rides up the river.
