We left Lisbon early Tuesday morning and have just spent 3 days on the island of Madeira. Madeira is part of Portugal, but is located off the coast of Africa just west of Casablanca. A small island of about 800 sq km. It's 55 km long and no more than 22 km wide. Amazing landscape. There's a mountain range in the middle of the island reaching to a height of almost 2000m.

Malmsey as it’s sometimes called in Britain) because it didn’t spoil in the hot
climate when even cellars could get very warm. After our tastes Mr. Souza offered
us the opportunity to buy a liter of his good wine for 10 Euros a liter. I
couldn’t resist the offer. Mr. Souza went to his collection of empty plastic

Here we are, still in Madeira enjoying the slow pace of life and the constant and predictable weather. The last two days the wind has kicked up and the forecasted high has dropped like a rock from 20 to 18 and we can't seem to take our eyes off the window and its views of trees being gently buffeted, as though we are witnessing Hurricane Katrina, an impending ice age and the evolution of Portuguese outerwear all at the same time.
