[ Lisboa ]
The other day I saw a segment on my national television station that truly left me worried about my city. So I don’t know if you also live in a city that struggles with this problem but, in Lisbon due to the uncontrollable growth in tourism and fame, people that are considered locals that live in authentic neighborhoods in areas like Alfama, are getting kicked out of their houses so that the buildings can be transformed into hostels and bs like that. Like don’t get me wrong, I love to see that my city is getting developed and that it’s getting attention but at what cost... people are losing their homes, people that have lived there for years and years, seniors, entire families, and many more are losing their homes for the development of hostels and tourism houses. Don’t we have enough of those already? It’s predicted that in a few years Lisbon is gonna have way too much offer for the need. So if this is the case why are we doing this? And that’s not only it! By doing this we are losing the essence of the city, we are losing the essence of the authentic streets of this beautiful city. A city is not only made of buildings and views, it’s also people and neighborhoods and local markets and so much more. And if we keep doing this, we are going to lose Lisbon to a bunch of money making machines called investors, and then we are going to lose the true beauty of this city, and we will regret it. There needs to investment, I understand that, but please invest in a smart way and in a non corrupting and destructive way. Clean the streets of the trash and dirt but not of the people and the small businesses.

It’s such a pleasure to take off a winter coat and finally not to wear hundreds layers of clothes 😂
| Deauville- Trouville | Life is better at sea don’t you think? 🌊💙 Loved spending time in this wonderful place. The only thing that was missing for a perfect moment was a cup of coffee in my hands. I think I'm becoming a coffeeholic person, 🙈 What about you? Do you love the coffee, too?
| Deauville- Trouville | La vida es mejor en el mar, ¿no crees? 🌊💙 Me encantó pasar tiempo en este maravilloso lugar. Lo único que faltaba en un momento perfecto era una taza de café en mis manos. Creo que me estoy convirtiendo en una persona adicta al café 🙈 ¿y tú? ¿También adicto al café?
