The sky got out its box of paints as we approached! Fabulous sunrise!
A late afternoon stroll through the town of Horta. It was sunny and warm. Time to take in the sights and sample a beer.
The colours from the stained glass were making patterns on the stone. Beautiful. Shame about the religious aspects.
After the Gold Buddha it was off to the Royal Palace – more gold and elaborate decoration. So lavish, bright and amazing. Architecture, design, decoration – WOW!!
It was one of those magical dawns which makes everything glow as if radiating an inner light.
Lisbon is a beautiful city. The sun splashed it with vibrant colours making it look like a work of art!
Walking around Recife in the tropical heat, sipping on a delicious coconut, sitting at a cafe with a beer, looking at the lavish opulence of the Catholic churches, the shanty towns, the tropical rainforest, parrots in the trees and the people.
