Cool Market-

Most people know about the “Ramblas” but this cool market is where most of the locals go to for fresh meat, fish, cheese, etc. I like that it’s not crowded. 🤫. .

The alleyways and side streets in “El Born” district. .
.

The tour guide gave us a little history about the working class people who lived there, how to read the street signs and how the names of the streets were related to the type of workers (glass, carpentry, etc.), among other interesting tidbits. .

I’m a decor nerd. I was raised by a mom who loved to go big with decor. We had a red velvet sofa set in the great room and brown tweed on the family room. We had giant blue and pink floral ‘70s wallpaper in the dining room, and in the 1990s, black floral wallpaper in the bathroom.
So when I get to see big, glorious decor in person, especially historic decor, I’m giddy.
I stumbled on the house of Nicola Nedkovich yesterday and got a tour of over an hour by the curator, Antoinette, a very French name for a very Bulgarian woman. Named after Marie Antoinette, of course. I told her it was the perfect name for a historian, and she died laughing. When she said children used to tease her about her name as a kid, I asked if she ever told them to “eat cake.” Nedkovich was a textiles merchant who was rich and famous. Eventually his house was left to the city and has become a national monument. Antoinette has been curator there for 39 years, and I absolutely loved her passion for story-telling. I may go back just to visit her one day before I leave.
The entire home is in the lived-in shape of the family. The detail is incredible. Look at the woodworker ceiling! It’s from 1863.
The father and mother had a daughter, and she never married. She remained alone in the house until her death, then left the home to her one faithful servant. Unmarried independent woman with a lifelong “servant”—I said to Antoinette, “You know she wasn’t a servant, right?” And she had a pretty good chuckle.
I’ll be posting a lot of photos from this place in the next couple days as I’m catching up on work. Gosh, I loved it. About $3 to enter.

The first floor had four rooms for entertaining and were where the family spent their days — each was modelled after a different season. This was summer, the red symbolizing the hot days.

That smile tho-he was trying to contain the excitement. ☺️

Someone’s excited for the food tour to begin! He turned and looked at me and said, “I know this is going to be good!” and I snapped a photo of his face. He found out about @secretfoodtours in Youtube and had wanted to do book the tour. Our guide, Miguel, was great by the way. 🙌🏼

My husband looks like a kid in a candy store…well, not yet, that’s later. And it was actually a nut store 😏🥜.

The frames are made in one piece. Layer by layer, these monoframes are printed from nylon powder using SLS (selective laser sintering) technology. Berlin-based @projektsamsen has simplified the traditional hinged frame to design an ingenious solution that contains no screws. The flexible frame adjusts to fit the wearer’s individual head shape. The optimised material produces one-of-a-kind frames that subsequently require no effort in terms of waste management, as there is no need to separate raw materials for recycling.

Final day blues ☁️ We’re making the most of it though, guess how many places we’ve seen on our last 12 hours in the #algarve ? Starting at the gorgeous Praia de Dona Ana, one of the most iconic beaches in Portugal!
*** also, major alert as I’m about to post a ton tonight 😋***

Some people eat to forget,

Others drink,

I travel.
