seen on the streets of Coimbra. there is a lot of (student/youth?) opposition to the dramatic rise in tourism here. a city with a lot of graffiti messages – for once i wish there was just a bit more art…
yer dead in the head;
so afraid to be lead
to bed as was said.
yer paid with lead;
like bread to be fed,
and wed as was read.
Long weekend in Gerês trekking, picnicking, relaxing and having fun.
A couple of us have been working for a month or two now to create an online database of needs for people who were badly hit by the fires. This covers the whole of the interior of Central Portugal. The idea is for donors and helpers to be able to focus on finding exactly what people are looking for to put their lives back together again.
Please use it and share it!
I have developed a WordPress Plugin for running the Needs Database – if you require something similar please ask and i will share it.
Much has been burned in the Arganil area and beyond.
My farm in Monte Frio has been completely burnt & charred – thankfully the house that was being reconstructed is untouched as until now it was only stone walls.
Here are some pics i took over the weekend.
