MADELEINEBLONDELL1Something strange emerges from the seawater at the marina in Faro. In fact, two sculptures that have spent decades forgotten in a corner of a council warehouse now can be seen in permanent exhibition at the Faro waterfront.

One is of a female figure, a sort of water nymph, with a shell shaped head and now seated on the steps of the old port in front of the hotel EVA. The other one is based on a whelk and is set on a temporary concrete base at the wharf.

Life in Loulé carries on as before...I come to Portugal every year to get away from city life, my parents have a place just outside the town of Loulé, in a tiny little village called Poco Novo. It’s a really remote location as it was an old derelict farmhouse at one time.

Iam 24 years old, and live in London. Being so cut off here gives a real time to reflect on things - there is no internet, TV etc. so it is sort of like being away from the modern age. As much as there is lots of tourism in surrounding areas  -Vilamoura, Vale de Lobo etc. - being so close to a quintessential Portuguese town such as Loulé really opens your eyes to what it’s like to be a citizen here.

Portugal has a lively media scene.

Cork FactoryFor many of the world’s cultures the sound of a popping cork is synonymous with good food, good times and good company. But we seldom give a thought to where that cork came from or how it was made. The members of the Rotary Club Estoi Palace International recently visited the cork processing factory, Novacortiça, near Sao Brás to discover the answers.

We were welcomed to the factory by our guide Gianluca Pereyra who gave us a short presentation before we toured the factory floor. Ginaluca told us that cork is the outer bark of the cork oak tree (Quercus suber) which flourishes around the Mediterranean basin in Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.
