The gibbons had an enclosure with at least two very tall trees amid some of the more usual structures of zoo life for apes like ropes and wooden climbing frames.

I'm still not quite done with the Portugal pictures - I keep posting them to remember the holidays. As there is only one more school day (which we'll spend on a field trip) until the autumn break, I should really post some today! Read more... )

Going to the same place three times in a row? A couple of years ago this was the epitome of Spie├čigkeit for me, boring, unimaginative and narrow-minded.

Well, this year we again returned to Lagos in Portugal, but my excuse is that it is a great place and we still hadn't seen everything.

For instance, we hadn't been inside the municipal market, an unremarkable building from 1924. More here )

In this popular square in Lagos you often find two statues. One depicts Sebastian of Portugal, King of Portugal and the Algarves, who succeeded to the throne at the age of three and died on an extremely foolish crusade, aged 24. (You will not be surprised to hear that this particular statue, as with most public art, wasn't received favourably. That said, I've seen better.)

Legend has it that he will return one day to save the country.

The other statue is definitely alive. Read more... )
