The Afalma neighbourhood in Lisbon dates from the days of Moorish occuption. Narrow and steep winding streets and alleys. After the Moors left, the area was a labourers neighbourhood, but after dictator Salazar left, it started turning into a neighbourhood for entertaining. When the evening sets after a warm day, the music starts up and from 21:00 there are a number of places where you can have a bite to eat, while being entertained to Fado music. More about this music in another week. Around 24:00 you drift back to your lodging for a well earned rest and then you happen on a coffee shop that is still open and sit down for a pastel de nata and an espresso with a shot of Aguardente Bagaçeira - just to fill up (so to speak) for the last two kilometers to bed.
This shot was taken when it was still daylight and the young man was playing favourites from the 1970's.
