People in the Estrela park 3


As previously mentioned, there are schools and a college in the park neighbourhood. Many of these young people spend the midday hour in the park. As well as some other, but definitely more locals than tourists.

Il y en a un qui dort bien...
Louis: Peut-être qu'il s'agit d'un enseignant de l'école à proximité et il méritait son repos...
that looks like santa on his day off, Louis.
Louis: smile a young Santa I think - his beard is not big and white yet.

They do look like comfortable park benches...
Louis: Must be Ray, as they don't even need a mattress (seen many bench sleepers in Portugal).
HA! You did a good job sneaking around, Louis. smile
Louis: Thanks, Ginnie. No need to sneak in Portugal - people are friendly and not upstairs about where I point the camera.

I don't think the man on the bench is a tourist Louis, or is he ever likely to be..
Louis: I agree with your observation - his tour will be over when he wakes up, if he ever tried to.

The Van Morrison song 'Jackie Wilson Said' with the words ' let it all hang out' springs to mind Louis.
Louis: Your comment jogged my memory as I remembered The Hombres singing a song "Let it all hang out". So I googled and found this youTube https://youtu.be/XWN65nAkk20 What I like is the pictures that accompany the song.
That sleeping bloke looks at peace with the world
Louis: Not even Brexit will wake him, Bill.
I hope I never get to look like that guy on the bench.
Louis: It takes hard work, e.g. a tough cream tea schedule, to get to that point, Brian.
The big fellow looks comfortable.
Louis: I believe he is, Mary.

'hang it all hang out'... indeed that song is great with the man on the bench...I am so glad that he was able to 'air out' his feet wink....
Great set of pictures from the park...Ik denk dat je ogen te kort kwam om alles te zien grin...
Louis: Thank you Astrid. I spent two hours relaxing in this park in between rushes of sightseeing.

These shots definitely tell the story of this park! Love his belly!
Louis: Thanks Beth. Quite a belly to hang over the bench side like that.
Oh dear...
Louis: Oh yes...
