Thank's a lot to the portugese team (imviterbo, pipocadoce, efeesse, Mr Staff and the others) :wink: It was a very good organisation 8)
But we forgot something by leaving Lissabon : the sun :cry:

Yeah, I'll have to swing by Suiça one of these days to see if it's still there. :) Regarding the situation in France, yeah, apparently it is/was a strike of all public servants.

Guess that is an effect of recent privatisation of the portuguese postal service, CTT.
That and increased prices.
Nothing that was not already expected...

If any of you would like to complain, here is a link to the portuguese tele-communications ombudsman complaints form.

I am sure they will be able to process english written complaints without any problems.

it's time to wish happy Easter to everybody

and I hope it's not too late to thank all the WEBTM 2014 organizers :oops:

they didn't forget me when I was hungry and tired and when I was looking for Lisbon's zip codes
they were patient with me when I asked for (maybe a lot of) informations about Portugal's medieval history :roll:
and they were friendly to during my last night and sweet(s) tour in Chiado :wink:

I was also happy to meet old and new friends with which spending two days together

Thanks, mico!

I'm glad you posted a picture of your little painting, including the back. For those who don't know, "pintado com café" means "painted in coffee". That's not a common watercolour: the "pigment" suspended in water in nothing more than coffee.

I was in the area yesterday, and I'm sad to report that I think it's gone. :( I say this with some reserve though, it was dark and I was in a bit of a rush. Looking at the picture again, I admit the possibility that I didn't look at that lamp post.

I had the same "thing".

Just before I left Portugal, I posted 4 postcards at the airport.
One arrived in a few days and another one took almost a month to go to the Netherlands.
The 3rd one was there in about 2 weeks.
I can't tell how long the 4th card took: last week I asked if the card had arrived and yes, it was in a bunch of mail (but they couldn't tell me when it arrived).
