The weather, these past few days, has been unforgiving. Temperatures have risen well beyond 40ÂșC in much of mainland Portugal, and during the night most of the country had temperatures in the 30’s. Plumes of african dust have painted our skies in a sort of light brownish pastel and we’re yet to see the blue over our heads. It was in this context that Carmen met me to snap some pictures, in a not so hot day, comparing to previous ones, but still nearing the 40’s. Lucky for her, she was in the nude for some of the shots, and we had a gentle breeze cooling us. A bit.
