Time to take a break from the everyday routine, I decided to take a trip to Portugal. First stop, Faro, then a taxi to Olhao camping, where I spent a week to get over a flu, that had debilitated me since Christmas. I packed the panniers in our guest room at home, wondered whether I should really take this trip. Of course, the itchy feet syndrome took over and here I am.

In the city, street artists were given the freedom to convert their graffiti into art by painting scenes on the walls of the city building from the way life used to be in this once small fishing village.
