However this week has been very wet and rather windy. Its not likely to change any time soon either.
Fortunately the local cinema shows English speaking films with Portuguese subtitles. We have been able to see all the latest films over the last few months and practise our Portuguese language knowledge too (actually that can be a bit distracting and you can be so busy reading the words that you can miss what is going on). This week we went to see Gangster Force - or Forca Anti Crime as it was called here and which was very violent and not much good unless you are partial to violent gangster movies.
Yesterday we decided to get out when we could when there was a break in the weather.
Unfortunately we didn't manage to get a shot of them but we did see plenty of hoopoe and they are quite a chilled sort of bird and hang around on footpaths so we did manage to snap one.
