One thing that stands out in my memories of Portugal is the graffiti (especially in Lisboa and Porto). Around every street corner there was another spray-painted image. My friend Laura and I were intrigued by this street art. Yes, although I don't want anyone to tag the side of my house, I think that sometimes graffiti can be quite beautiful or thought-provoking. The strawberry above falls into the former category, but a lot of the graffiti that I saw in Portugal fell into the latter category, rife with political messages and expressing personal discontent.
(And sorry for the short message today. I certainly fulfilled the "labor" part of labor day, meaning there's wasn't much time left over for posting.)
