Postcards from Portugal...

By Chinga
Postcards from Portugal Looking at the last two week's data, Portugal has both the highest Covid cases rates (16,829 per million people) and death rates (340 deaths per million people). These numbers exceed both the UK (case rates 6,480, death rate 250 per million) and the US (case rates 6,920, death rate 131 per million) by a considerable margin. Therefore at present, we have been advised not to go there... Sad state of affairs.
So here is a collection of images that may allow me to enjoy a visit in the future when this is all passed.
Thank you for your votes on the "rusty bones", and to Phil (OverthehillPhil), Trev (TrevBatWCC), Richard (Aveeno), Rich (Woodini254), Jeff (Kojack), Debs (Frogs123), Tim (TimothyDMorton), Mike (MikeGillingham), William (Wsh), Bernie (BRITCHIE), and Peter Handlerstudio), who kindly awarded the images, thank you all. Isabel

Nice selection of glimpses of Portugal Isabel. The strict control of movement and generally good observance of restrictions has resulted in an encouraging reduction in new cases, The (in)famous R no. is now 0.82.

Wish it was as warm here as it looks in these images! A fine collection, Isabel, I like the washing hung out in V8! Love those chimneys in V9 too, but my fave has to be V11, for the wonderful view over the rooftops 😃👍

A colourful and very interesting set Isabel. I hope the infection rate in Portugal decreases very quickly, and everywhere else too.

a joy to see!
sad to hear about the covid situation there

A lovely set of images Isabel. Been to Portugal, particularly Lisbon, a number of times. A lovely country and sad about the Covid-19 situation.

It was suggested that we buy a place in Portugal--- perhaps not!

Appealing images!
Thatís a fabulous set of images. You must be looking forward to going back to Portugal. Iím so sorry their infection and death rate is so high. Letís hope the vaccination both reduces and keeps infection rates down.

V4 - I almost had a migraine after walking across that square.
V8 - and the wash hung just anywhere. I stopped to look at some clothes on hangers on a rack on the sidewalk. Thought they were for sale until a woman drove me off.
