This is the view that greeted me after I returned from my run around the Evora city wall
Once again the Aqueduct "photo-bombed" a picture
Although the rain had stopped long enough for me to run,
it returned as we drove out of Evora towards Monsaraz
Rain reflected in the coach wing mirror
Our coach driver, Helder, offering journo Steve shelter from the rain...
A view from the outside looking in...
or should I say up
Jumping for joy?
No, Tom is jumping because I asked him to.
The village outside the castle walls
Looking down one of the side streets
As it is situated on the top of a hills,
the views of the surrounding countryside are spectacular
Inside the castle walls.
There are a few people who still live here.
But the majority are traders who sell to the tourists,
but do not stay here permanently
This lake is man-made and was not here when the castle was built
The workmanship of the stonemasons who built these walls
is truly superb.
Would our modern building stand the test of time?
I somehow do not think so
I kept expecting Russel Crowe to step into the arena.
My view from the parapet.
In the foreground, a cemetary and the lake in the distance
Most of the shops were selling Olive oil and ceramics.
This one was selling a variety of hand made woolen goods
When we arrived this street had been full of cars.
Luckily they were all gone when I was leaving
and I was able to get this shot
Looking through the main entrance
It has been a while since I have seen one of these cars...
I got to chat with Insight Vacations CEO John Boulding
My travelling companions.
Justin, the Gnome, Kwand-hare
and the "travelling heart" from my daughter...
