    Just some things in our neighbour hood.

    The traffic restriction, the little bollard goes up when someone who has a pass swipes it and if you do not have a pass you can't get in.

    The flower pot with the circular trimming of ??? some sort of herb and a carnation. Seems to have some affiliation with the Festival of St Anthony. But we have not found out what just yet.

    Feast of St anthony is a festival of Sardines.....

    See all the cigarette butts?? there are a lot of smokers here.....they would not do well in Vancouver with all our bylaws, there are no bylaws here. a few restaurants have it posted no smoking, but not a lot.

    See the bikes? they are located on a bike path along the river....the only flat bit in the city!

    Got off the tram at the top of the Bica Funicular, which is no longer running, but boy were the streets crowded.. They say this is the night life area, and they are not kidding. Music everywhere, tents selling food, mostly sardines and pork, and lots of beer! as we were making our way down the funicular hill a group of 3 guys link arms together to allow me to pass, It was quite cute they created a little wall so I could get through, then they waved......I guess I reminded them of their mom :)

    We had a midnight snack, and it was almost midnight, at one of the restaurants just up from the square at the bottom of the Bica elevator. Largo de santo antonio....i think

    Pork chop, very flat, salad and potato chips, with a glass of port!

    then back to our place, which again the lane was being used as the local urinal! we had followed one guy so he had to wait till we entered our courtyard before he could take his pee.

    This morning the city crew has already been and has cleaned up, and I think hosed down the lane...... the portuguese do know how to party.....late into the eve....
