Happy Birthday Oeiras!
Joinville ( BR ) a cidade onde estou no momento, celebrou em 09 de março 158 anos, o que foi legal é que o feriado caiu numa segunda feira!
Estava pensando...31 de outubro cai num sabado, será que na sexta feira já terá feriado e um fim de semana prolongado?Seria legal!

Have a nice day dear JM and enjoy all festivities there !
Kind regards
Léia

Hello JM,
I love your blog and have updated SparkleMirror to show “Oeiras and Environs DP” in the “Sparkling Gems of Delight” section on the sidebar (favorite blogs). Each time you post, yours will appear beautifully at the top of that list. Thanks for providing such interesting content for my friends and me…

Congratulations to Oeiras. It is indeed young. This year, Bermuda is celebrating its 400th (1609-2009) anniversary. I'm sure both celebrations will be grand and festive.

Any particular reason why there are 84 hearts in this poster? Symbolizing something, mayhaps.

Have a happy jubilee!

A 'youg city' you say. Our whole country is barely that old. It does look like a cake. If you have a cake save me a bite. MB

Ya hace mucho tiempo, demasiado, fui con una amiga de viaje. Visitamos Lisboa, Sintra y Oeiras, y nos encantó. Este blog me ha traído muy buenos recuerdos, gracias!
P.D. Siempre he tenido ganas de volver a esos tres sitios.
