Nice of you to put the Haitian Earthquake Relief on your sidebar. What a disaster.
I guess the Portuguese know what a quake is like.

Makes one enjoy being able to hang clean laundry on a standing building.

I'm with afv - let's hope there's not too much dust flying around or they might need another white-wash rather soon...

Jacob said...

These folks aren't shy about showing off their underpants! Funky shot.

Re: Gators...We've eaten there several times, and I can't tell you if they serve alligator or not! I just didn't bother to check. But I will next time and let you know.

People tell me it tastes like chicken. But then that's what I hear about frog legs, too...so, I dunno!

Leif Hagen said...

I guess we don't have to wonder anymore what kind of undergarments they wear!

Wonderful, JM.

Well somebody has to live in those gorgeous old apartments, right? ;)

Joan Elizabeth said...

Delightful shot ... not sure I'd like to have my undies on such public display.

As is said---let it all hang out. Must mean laundry. Cute. MB

Excellent shot! I love it :-)

Vernz said...

Fantastico! great capture!

Peter said...

The charm of seeing this beautifuk ceramic wall ... and the hanging laundry! No chance to see this in Paris, at least not the laundry, forbidden to be hung outside buildings!
