Spain and Portugal will have common celebration of the 500th anniversary of first circumnavigation of the Earth


Ad Honorem
Jan 2017
Been there in the summer of the revolution , Army generals were heroes
people were going bonkers with spray paint cans ,
the white walls were a perfect medium to be painted with garish slogans
Portugese drivers idea of careful driving was honking their horn at crossroads shooting through at high speed
trains were very slow , very crowded and very friendly .
after a somewhat constipated Franquist Spain it felt good to be there
