Closer to the cerimonial gate. An aqueduct as a city wall that becomes the archery of an imaginary palace running from here to the river bank. This house on the right-hand side looks like a poor aristocracy little palace just outside the magnificent royal domains.

Tales of Deconfinement 5

Turning right towards south, I descend Rua das Amoreiras. At the bottom an aqueduct arch is upgraded to the status of a city door. I like to fancy that is the door of an imaginary huge palace, Versailles like, that occupies all of the eighteen century city area…

Further on in the hill top, a combination of three very ugly buildings. I thought that they maybe would age well but… Still impressive but sadly still not erudite enough nor well drawn, design or colored. Yet they are family, nice to say hello to.

On the top of the hill, looking down the 85 stairs, the aqueduct is obstructed by Ginásio Clube Português new padel courts.  Some sounds of people playing start to surface sometimes.

Tales of Deconfinement 1

Portugal is now in phase II of deconfinement. The prospect of a National Health Service near collapse as in Spain and Italy was never even close. Things are starting to go back in motion with some sensible restrictions such as masks and prohibition of gatherings. Small businesses are having a head start. There is a general movement increase and city sounds are resuming. This means that I’m starting my early morning walk earlier. After some warming up laps around Jardim das Amoreiras, I climb the Ginásio Clube Português’  stairs. Eighty five steps up to Águas Livres building.

At the end of the living room, an extra small room. Almost like a large bow-window, bowing over the avocado tree. CDs and DVDs and coffee table books are stored there along with an old stereo multiplex, a relic from the 1990’s, that still offers a cassete reader. A place of tropical relaxation. An imaginary winter garden in Rio de Janeiro’s winter. And interesting high corners too.
