J. sends more pictures from the trip to Cape Verde, a former Portuguese colony, halfway between Africa, Europe and America. This map shows its location.

A view to the Baixa Pombalina, an area rebuilt after our major earthquake of 1755.

In case any of you guys ever comes to Lisbon, you may try to stay in a wonderful hotel in the Chiado area - the Hotel do Chiado. It is located in the downtown, has a stunning decoration and, above all, a cafe, restaurant and a hanging garden in its top floor. I was there a few days ago and took these pictures.
