Not really, Brisbane isn't that exciting "The 'Gabba" should stand out from an aerial point of view (it's the Brisbane Cricket Ground - A pretty large stadium on the inner east side). And the Morningside cemetery is just down the street form me!
Here are some pictures of the park: [url]http://maps.google.com/maps/place?cid=17630900816200425241&q=Parque+Olhos&hl=pt-BR&cd=4&cad=srcpphoto&ei=7JjWS-PZNo2MzASysOCEDA&sig2=EXsYshF7zfHeJoMXGrJIbw[/url]
The flora there doesn't really look like you're in a Savannah, right? Here it looks an awful lot like Africa, vegetation wise. It's a shame there are no awesome animals around here, though.
You're right, it doesn't strike me as stereotypically 'Brazilian' but then, my steroetype of Brazil is dense jungle and rain forest
You lie though! There are awesome animals everywhere. Mostly feathered You just have to look/listen. It's weird... once you get used to tuning into stuff like that, you see/hear them everywhere you go. Their sounds are clearly definable over the regular human sounds, like traffic, talking, whatever - even in cities. It's not on most people's minds though, so I hear so often that places 'have no wildlife' etc. They're in there
Bah, I can't even imagine all the amazing birds you have there in Brazil

Parrots we do get, though mostly of the smaller variety (Rainbow Lorikeets). Beautiful and colourful though.
He left out the bit about being NOISY!
For about 2 months when all the trees come out in blossom these shrieking hooligans come in packs of 100's, sit outside in the trees at 5am. It's like living next to an old age home full of people that are 90% deaf.
"HEY! THERES SOME BLOSSOMS HERE!"
"I SAID THERES SOME BLOSSOMS HERE!"
"BLOSSOMS! THERES SOME BLOSSOMS HERE!"
"WHAT! HEY THERE'S SOME BLOSSOMS HERE!"
"YEAH I SAID... OH HEY! THATS MY BLOSSOM! GET OUT OF IT!
