Festa Dos Tabuleiros, Tomar

… and at the sound of the three chimes

The trays were raised together, and a sea of colours and flowers blossomed instantly floating with the girls, careful guarded by the boys. Yielding cheers and an infinite round of applause that echoed throughout the city, like a reminder to those still at home, possibly afraid of the heat…

Two times two

Four hours marking the pace, almost like fulfilling a promise long made. Four years of gap between each Festa. Four o’clock was the time the parade started. And four were my friends parading!

Thank you for the invitation Miss Rititi and Monsieur Digui
