When the fire meets the ocean

Mira Beach, Portugal
Looks beautifull doesn't it? The fires that covered portuguese forests from June to August 2005 made up this beautifull but sad sunset...


"a festa" in Madeira Island

Funchal, Madeira Island, Portugal
Christmas in Madeira is like no place else. The catholic tradition is still lived in full spirit. Christmas and New Year's Eve season is called "a festa" (the party) which demonstrates how important it is for the island.
From the higher quotes of Funchal to the lively seaside, lights turn night into day, specially by New Year's Eve when fireworks throughout the city (and sea) perform one of the world's best firework show to delight locals and specially tourists who arrive mostly with international cruises.
A show not to miss... at least once in your life.
