Where Babies Come From – Faro, Portugal!

June 14, 2013

Last month, I started my European trip in Portugal. After enjoying the northern city of Porto for a few days, I needed to get my ass sun kissed a bit.  I spent a few days in Lagos (post to come), but I also spent a few days in Faro, the biggest city in the Algarve region, but one that is more full of locals than tourists.

While the city has a quaint city center and some good restaurants and bars, I thought the coolest thing were the stork nests precipitously crafted atop churches, buildings and light poles. I guess the locals don’t mind the massive birds making home wherever they want, but I enjoyed walking around the city trying to find their love baskets.

I remember seeing lots of stork nests in a western suburb of Madrid, Alcala de Henares. (Did you ever see your birth announcement? Your grandfather portrayed you as being delivered to our house by a stork. How old were you when you stopped believing that?)

Beautiful pictures, Jeremy!

Not long ago, my friend and I visited Brasov and its surroundings here in Romania. We saw quite a few stork nests on people’s chimneys; with “baby storks” in them as well :)
