Today I set up a new home in the historic quarter of Viana do Castelo, Portugal. The living room balcony looks out onto a pedestrian street that couldn't be more beautiful. The picture is of the shadows cast by the balcony of the palace across the street from my place. I hear seagulls at all hours of the day because the apartment is only two blocks from the fisherman's port located at the mouth of the Lima River. So much of Portugal yet to explore. Can't wait to get to know the artistic community!
