"Super Fiendish and Killers" have filled most of my mornings over the last six months. These Soduko puzzles plus a run through of all the free web based papers has usually left me in dire need of physical exercise during the afternoon hours. So some days I have enjoyed isolated scrambles, inland over the western Algarve and over the cliffs/beaches stretching from Vale de Boi to Cape Vicente. "Magnificient" is the only word that describes these adventures.
Scientists publish many reports each day, almost always ignored by the government that pays them. It's time to move ahead. As Bagão Felix writes in the book RESSURGIR, 'please do not change a sand-grain so that almost everything stays the same. We are seduced'by the obsession of quantity,futility and uselessness'.
Why is Portugal being highlighted as a Danger Zone, apparently victimised by the UK Government, when in fact it is the UK which is the Danger Zone ? Let's look at some calculations...
We are British. We have been coming to the Algarve for at least 30 years, and have a house here. Portugal is the most lovely, most welcoming and just fantastic place in the whole world! I know, I am lucky enough to have spent my working life travelling to most countries! I fell in love with the Algarve in 1967.
Many are apprehensively considering travel to Portugal this Summer. A frequent visitor and home owner in the Algarve tells us about their travel experience and their time when staying here during the first 2 weeks in July 2020.
Forty years ago I was rushed to hospital with a suspected heart attack, it turned out to be Pericarditis, a severe virus on the heart bag, I was admitted immediately. After several more tests they told me it was very infected and that I would have to stay in hospital for the next 10 to 14 days, and to me that was a very daunting prospect.
Located at the very top of the Albufeira marina, for a long time it was a street without a name. Different residents used different names: Alto de Orada, Camino de Baleeira ...
The street is probably the least maintained in all of Albufeira. A long time ago (in some places), sporadic repairs were made on the road. There are now level differences (pits), from +10 cm, loose stones, broken footpaths, simply smelly dirt and very dangerous. Stones flying around by passing cars, people turning their feet when walking.
In this time of chaos we need firmness and expertise, even at the expense of unpopularity. It is time for statesmen, such as Churchill, Sá Carneiro and Golda Meyer. Finance is not an end, but a means for citizenship. It must have less power then Health, Education and Economy.
