Portugal, My Beautiful Country


Today is Dia de Portugal, de Camões e das Comunidades Portuguesas, the  Portugal's National Day.
 This post is about my beloved country but it is not about lack of hope unemployment, hunger, emmigration,  insane austerity measures, corruption or political impunity.

It's about the beauty  of this country of
friendly and talented people.
