Three of gates I pass when i go to the village. The first two are Village gates. The bottom one being mine.
In the distance is my son's barn.
I had to stop. to take a photo of our traditional black pigs, I spied while driving home. Many of them were brown. This region is known for black pork and used in many traditional dishes. The pigs eat the acorns from the cork oaks that fall onto the ground below.
Not only does the tree provide cork. It provides food too.
|Jeffrey and Hardy -They love a drive out with me. They too had spied the pigs.|
I have had a few followers commenting on where I live and wanted to know a little more about it.
This is a map of Portugal.
The area in red is Alentejo. The largest province in Portugal.
Also one of the hottest regions in Europe.
I am at the beginning of a semi arid area about 45 min away in the direction of the Town of Beja. 140 k from the Capital city Lisboa. (Lisbon)..
Today has been a lovely sunny Monday, just a little chill still in the air.
I would love to know where you live and some of the traditions.
