One could sit there and gaze and the tiles and imagine the famous old ships right there in the sea.

Lindo lugar. A paisagem combina com a arquitetura.

Gosto muito dos azulejos portugueses.

This is so impressive and so unusual from my point of view. It takes a very talented person to do this kind of work. I'll bet it is expensive, too.

Glad to hear the Inside Out Project came off well. 139 posters! Will I be able to see them once they've been put up?

The view is lovely and the tiles are even more beautiful than the view!

When I see the title I thought on the Boney M's song.
