4,260 of 4,613 restaurants in Lisbon

We enjoyed our meal in Lisbon, having purposely chosen the restaurant because it offered Portuguese food. That was until I checked out the Tripadvisor entry and discovered that it was 4,260 of 4,613 restaurants in Lisbon, which somewhat took the shine off the evening. My son’s comment via WhatsApp was “Almost the worst one in Lisbon 😂 fingers crossed…”, which was amusing if not comforting, whilst my missus chipped in with “Not like dad not to have done his homework!!!”.

Restaurante Cervejaria Ruca, Lisbon
Is it wrong for me to be annoyed by the use of the word “your” rather than the word “the”, as in ‘Here’s your weather”?

Isn’t Nature wonderful

This beautiful vegetable came in the veggie-box.

Machines – an astonishing documentary

This astonishing documentary about life in an Indian textile factory is available once again on the BBC iPlayer, but only until Tuesday (now expired): https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09g8cc9/machines
At the very least, these workers deserve 65 minutes of your time.

Capture“A mesmerising and unflinching look behind the doors of a textile factory in India, as director Rahul Jain observes the life of the workers and the oppressive environment they seldom escape from. Machines tells a story of the human cost of mass production in a globalised world, showing the gulf between rich and poor from both perspectives.”

Chartwell, Kent

Chartwell, home of Winston Churchill, has beautiful gardens and an interesting house, and makes for a lovely day out.

Scarborough

Some final pictures of Scarborough, taken with the camera, possibly the last for a while as it’s time to visit other places.
