One thing that I love about Portugal is how incredibly busy each Summer gets. There’s no town in the country, big or small, that doesn’t have a calendar of street festivals and other entertainment that stretches from the early days of June to the last days of August. The weather also helps!
Last weekend was going to be a weekend like many others. I was booked for a wedding on the other side of the country. A fair amount of travelling was required but nothing I’m not used to. I was going to book my tickets, pack my bags, leave for the station and try to deliver a good show.
