We visit Macau once a year I imagine and it was until 1999 a Portuguese colony. So it was no surprise at all to see the familiar blue and white tile work everywhere in Portugal. I like it and have plenty of shots to support that assertion. Here are a few.
From the grandest scale to the smallest detail, whether the practical clock or with the colonial (?) tang of the exotic fruit vendors, the tiles draw the eye and decorate the towns and villages. So much better than a plain brick or stone wall. I hope the tradition survives.
