Regresso da Páscoa / Easter return

Aqui estou, de regresso, após uma Páscoa cheia de chuva, vento e trovoadas!
Na última terça-feira (primeira depois da Páscoa) fomos à Póvoa de Varzim (onde nasci e vivi a minha juventude) e assistimos a uma tradição recente: a rua mais comercial e ruas adjacentes recebem a visita Pascal, enfeitando as entradas das lojas com tapetes de flores. A Cruz entra em todas as lojas (no domingo e segunda-feira de Páscoa as lojas tradicionais estão fechadas e, tradicionalmente, a visita Pascal católica é feita no domingo de Páscoa ou segunda-feira, principalmente no campo). Felizmente não chovia… e o sol até espreitou.

Here I am, after an Easter full of rain, wind and storms!
On last Tuesday (first Tuesday after Easter) we went to Póvoa de Varzim (where I was born and lived my youth) and witnessed a recent tradition: the most commercial street and adjacent streets are visited by the Easter Visit, gracing the entrances of shops with carpets of flowers. The Jesus Cross enters each shop (on Sunday and Monday after Easter traditional shops are closed and traditionally the Catholic Easter Visit happens on Easter Sunday or Monday, mostly in the country). Thankfully it was not raining … and the sun was even peeking.

Flores, no campo, só dentro de casa ou abrigadas. As ameixoeiras, pessegueiros e amendoeiras estão lindas, mas a perder a flôr com o vento e chuva :(
In the countryside flowers only indoors or housed. The plum, peach and almond trees are beautiful, but losing their flowers in the wind and rain :(
