The National Geographic moment of the weekend

After being save from dying in the fireplace (effort that took several minutes because it cannot be touched, it’s poisonous) and being put in the street, the cat came and in seconds it was just the crshh-crshh-crshh sound. Ewww..

Hello Europe!

703831_365697550195468_235833602_o

Hello Europe! is a project made by three friends. What’s their ideia? They’ll be going around Europe for 100 days in an RV, stopping in several cities and in each one they’ll go looking for street artists and choosing the 3 best artists by facebook votation.

By their words:
“Sometimes the best artists hide and find where least expected. A less visible art in front of everyone with so much meaning.
Sometimes the streets are flooded with art, music, color. With charismatic faces and talent which makes us stop and observe. Forgetting the rush, the stress and the bills to pay. We awaken our senses to receive the emotions they are offering us without knowing for sure they will receive something in return.”

If you want to support their project, go to Indiegogo where they have a campaign for raising funds. If wish to know more about Hello Europe! project visit their facebook page.

I’ll be posting news here as well!

Waiting for the train

All train stations from Sintra to Lisbon have been progressively modernized over the years, except for this one that keeps its old look, reminding me that this once was a small village and now is one of the most densely populated towns of Portugal.

Zé Carioca* and friends

There’s a group of about 5 or 6 parrots that live freely here in Lisbon, on the surroundings of IST, where I work. Sometimes I even see them inside the campus. I’ve seen (and heard) them many times, but only today I had the chance to take pictures. It’s kind of a strange thing to see an exotic bird around here unless is in a cage, and even more when you see a pack of them, that somehow keep surviving on an habitat so different from their natural one. What stories would this guys have to tell us?01
