I have seen the same sight in many of the world's really old cities and towns. Hard to imagine, when the pundits tell you that you should invest in property - is that properties also reach an 'end-of-line'. This property is just outside the eastern gate of the castle on Castle Hill in Lisbon. Some modern homes show on the horizon line, above the ruins of what must have been a big house, towering over that front wall. I like how time shows in the various approaches and materials evidenced in the now bare walls.
Two homeless pot-smoking types were hanging about, one with a guitar and the other pretending to sing. When I took this picture (taking care to leave them out of the picture), they started demanding that I should generously contribute towards aintenance of the property. While smiling a big one, I explained to them in Afrikaans that on the show of the property deed certificate, I will tender an advance of 1 euro each, towards their favourite weed fund. I patiently waited for them to produce the paper work, but to no avail. I then bade them a fond farewell and walked off, leaving them grumbling.
May you all have brilliant weekends.
