I would say that one of my biggest vices is, without doubt, travel. There's just something about traveling, seeing new places, contacting with realities different from our own. It is curious that someone like me, so attached to my own space, enjoys so much fast changes, like moving away from what is actually known to dive into the unknown. I think that it justifies exactly some of the decisions I made throughout my life, all the radical changes that I made and all the extreme decisions that I took.
I also like to return to places that I have visited a long time ago. That nostalgia from the past comes every now and then, that brokenness feeling that makes us look back again into what's gone. Last Sunday, I walked back in time, possibly four years. In my own time and on others time, which far predate mine. Mafra is suh a picturesque place, no doubt. Beginning with tourism, gastronomy and handicrafts. I revisited the Mafra Palace and the surrounding area. It is essential to visit these landmarks, if only just to enjoy the architectural beauty they represent. I think is the best way to contact with not only our culture but also with the entire history of our country. Speaking for myself, I can't help feeling just somehow different walking into all those rooms and going down all those aisles. There is actually something that makes us feel different, in a derisory way.So these are just some random pictures I shot inside the palace. Thus, expect more photos in the next posts.
