Our Lady of Deliverance Procession

... early eighteenth century, being remodeled in the next century. The interior of the temple has three 18th century altars. - See more at: ches.html#sthash.CiPniNBy.dpuf

Women were perched in the window on the second floor of the church just above the entrance. When the statue of the Virgin Mary and the ark upon which it rested passed through the church doorway, these women tossed down flowers and rose pedals to ...

Into the Mountains of Portugal--and Back in Time

A travel blog entry by curtcarlson


... with people from a bus tour. There was only one bus tour in town, but it seemed they were all packed in at long tables in restaurant number two. The waiter there told us they had "no more food" to serve us, so we left.

Unlike the warmer months, we didn’t have to put up with the crowds! We ...

... store. The soap turned out NOT to be handmade Portuguese scented soap, as pointed out later by Marcela, along with a good laugh on us.

We also purchased a bag of oranges from Manuel, (owner of BECitrus of Tavira, and one of our newly acquired friends in town. He, by the way, is the one who has mastered 10 languages, not the 6 that I believe I previously mis-reported. He also has an MBA from Exeter University in England.) Just as we ...
