Obrigado Portugal !

Residencial Santa Catarina at the top of the street
Long zoom views of the city hills
Smooth white cobbles underfoot
Out the train window suddenly the bridges of Porto come into view and the landscape opens up around the river
Stopping in the Alfama cybercafe before going down into the narrower streets of the old town
Young wild ocalot looking cats playing in the square
Galician fish lunch down in Bica . Monkfish and gambas dinner on skewers at Hospedaria Frangaria after a day of blasting white sun in Faro
The east of women
castles up on the hills , lit up in the night
V Francis Xira
Silver waves of the ocean and a long boardwalkway running alongside the coastline

Watched a videotape from NHK on Magreb
and the next day there were bombs in N Africa.
Another show then came on , on Merrakech
Times article on 'Fez as the soul of Morocco'
Had done some planning to travel down to Tarifa and take a day trip over to Tangiers
in the end glad I didn't try to do too much.

had reserved a beautiful hotel guesthouse but will have to wait for next time ...
