Tuesday facts and ABCW tomorrow - P is for Portugal
I could have given you a lot of facts about Portugal this Tuesday, but the information available at Wikipedia is the right source for that reading. I will however, for all of you that want to take a trip to this interesting country, do not only read the overall Wikipedia article, but also go deeper into every 7 regions (Alentejo, Algarve, Açores, Centro, Lisboa, Madeira, and Norte).
Portugal is a developed country, and although having one of the lowest GDP per capita of Western European countries, it has a high Human Development Index and is among the world's 20 highest rated countries in terms of quality of life. It is a member of the European Union (since 1986) and the United Nations (since 1955)
My holiday last week to the three regions Algarve, Alentejo and Lisboa, has made my interest for visiting the Centro and Norte regions even stronger. According to comments from friends is the wine also better up there. May be will the island regions also be visited in the years to come.
But until new photos are taken, you have to deal with the south and one third of my shots presented like this of the Atlantic Ocean at
My Portugal Gallary.
