Not much of a shop but oh the views!!
May 1st, 2013 at 10:51am
 
Well, I am too embarrassed to post a photo of my shop so thought I would post a picture of the views from my shop.

This is what I see every morning from my shop. A section of the 15 acres of prime Portuguese countryside that I am very proud to say is mine! Nope, not even the bank has a claim on this baby!  Grin

Nigel, if you don't mind my asking, what part of Portugal?  We took a tour bus from Lisbon to Cascais.  From Cascais we followed the road along the ocean then cut inland to Sintra.  The drive to Sintra had some very pretty countryside.

Ah you were in the 'posh' part of Portugal  Wink

I live in Coimbra district, pretty much in the center of the country. A rural land where subsistence still farming continues. Not too many mod cons around here and certainly no wood turning suppliers  bang head Not even a McDonalds within an hours drive!

Farms and whole villages are abandoned here as the 'youngesters' do not want to live as their parents did. There is no work here and moving to Lisbon or Porto is pretty much the only option.

Thanks Nigel.  Wife and I will be visiting Lisbon again this October.  Will only be there for a day (off a cruise ship), but look forward to seeing some of Lisbon.  I remember getting this kind of pastry like food in Sintra. Don't remember the name, but it was pretty good stuff.
