We had a lovely day here in Alentejo. enjoying a relaxed morning with our blip friend hosts and then we set out for a village called Estrela, or in English, Star. Estrella is beautifully situated on a headland in the new lake, but seems a very quiet village. I have been fascinated by the huge variety of chimneys on houses and started to photograph them today in Estrella. Here is the one I thought the most spectacular. It wasn't really "turning" but in Malmö there is a building called Turning Torso that twists in a similar fashion.
We ate lunch in a restaurant in the village, newly opened, called Sabores da Estrela (Flavours of Estrella). Delicious food, great views over the lake and the chef and his front-of-house wife were delightfully friendly.
