March 3rd – People

We took the 4 legged children on quite a hike today, and the scenery was stunning, but today’s photo is about life in rural Portugal. We passed by a sacred Font in the local village of Santa Clara and local women were sweeping up, and chatting away.

Something we seldom see these days, with people so busy and wrapped up in their own lives, technology and everything else that goes on in our lives. It probably took them 20 minutes to tidy up but in that time they clearly spent quality time together whilst making their little font spotlessly clean.

They are probably the village mental health experts, helping each other through community actions and being good listeners. I am sure a few opinions were being thrown around as well but unfortunately listening in Portuguese is not a strength of mine.

Community spirit
