    Very beautiful scenery, Rui. Was wondering why Para sounded so familiar until I remembered our history and the connection between Para and the rubber tree Hevea brasilliensis and how Henry Wickham smuggled the rubber seeds out of Brazil and the trees reached Malaya(now Malaysia) via Kew and the Botanic Gardens in Ceylon. And of course the rest is history and Malaya surpassed Para as the centre of the rubber industry.
