~ Relaxing, taking it easy… but always together in twos and threes.


~ A typical Portuguese snack stand, with nuts, seeds, corn and bananas, plus sweetness.


~ Bent after a full life of work, but still active and participating in black and hard-earned wrinkles. Beautiful!


~A stately gentleman in holiday suit, still safe from the busloads of tourists who will soon arrive.

In the header the food these hospitable people always provide for hungry travelers. We keep coming back to taste and feel Portugal. Bits and pieces of my heart can be found everywhere…

Thank you, Aaron Joel Santos, for providing us with this Cultural Photo Challenge!
