ah, september! the summer starts to wind down slowly as kids return to school, and the algarve is left to its own.
the mediterranean diet fair took place, and we saw bits of it, including a few concerts. and then we packed and took the train north, to help with family stuff. there was chefs on fire — a neat outdoor event in which we filled our bellies with nice food, hung out with friends and saw concerts. also, the house painting started, and i came south to oversee its beginning but then quickly went back north again. all in all, a good month, with lots of music, friends & family… and lots of getting sick on trains, my new speciality *sigh*.
