Porto Alegre - Primavera\Lisboa - Outono 2011


"... em Porto Alegre, o Sol está mal colocado, sempre nos ofusca a visão, como
o reflexo de um espelho!"
Iberê Camargo, Gaveta dos Guardados

"... tomamos o Bentyl e eu tava viajando na região das boutiques chiques
da Independência, perto da Avenida Mostardeiro..."
"a nossa conexão é outra, adoramos aquela ladeira... subimos e descemos
sem parar, com aquela ventania, um sem saber do outro."

Júpiter Maçã, A Odisséia



"Je me dirigeai en compagnie de Jules, qui lui état à la recherche de babioles pour
 ses enfants, vers la seconde église que j'avais repérée... l'église de Saint-Roc,
 dont je parcourus un à un les autels, jusqu'à ce que le bedeau, qui éteignait
derrière moi leurs illuminations, me chassait de l'église."
Hervé Guibert



Pictures of trees were taken mostly in parks (Parque Moinhos de Vento & Parque Farroupilha). Pictures of buildings were tanken mostly in down town.




























==================================
Pictures of buildings and street art were taken mostly in Odivelas, Alfama, Chiado and Bairro Alto; they were taken also near the Mosteiro dos Jerônimos, the Museu de Arte Antiga, Cais do Sodré and Museu do Azulejo. There are a few pictures from Setúbal. 
I thank Maria Estela Guedes for letting me stay at her apartment in Odivelas (for the sencond time), and also Ana Luisa Janeira, whith whom I walked through Alfama and other places. 
Places interesting to go in Lisbon are also the Igreja de São Roque (and its museum), and Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. There is a good bookstore inside the building of the Biblioteca Nacional. Fnac Chiado is a good place to buy books and Dvds.
I used to go to the cinema at El Corte Inglés. Lisbon has some nice municipal swimming pools. While there, I used to swim at the Piscina Municipal do Rego.
