"This is the marketplace morning report from the bbc world service. I'm victoria craig. good morning. We start in portugal where today british travelers are allowed to travel for leisure and without mandatory quarantine. That's after the uk. Government added portugal and eleven other nations to its so-called green travel list. The excitement to take an international trip once again was palpable this morning. Before some of the first flights out of britain trivillian's poach goal has been a very long and our year figure about one day of what so far. It's been quite stressful. Lots of pipe were covid. Test expense phoenix now with down yet doing all the right things as a union. I was i. I'm going on holiday. i'm not staying anymore. Looks lovely portugal. So yes we when we got week of rain here and twenty six degrees in photograph. Why not portuguese. Temperatures are almost eighty degrees fahrenheit. Which to me sounds pretty good since. It's pretty radiant cold here in london. It's not just passengers. Get the summer travel season into full swing though but businesses across portugal are also looking forward to a bit more normalcy. The bbc's nick beak talked to several business owners including tour boat. Operator in the algarve hof of auditory arriving at the airport about forty minutes from where. I'm talking to you today. That british and so to have those people back is really really important because it sustained so many jobs not just on the beachfront but also the big hotels and the tourist industry as a whole is crucial to this. Part of the world are gulf coast but also portugal clearly some optimism but is there any sort of trepidation may because the state of covid alert has been raised in portugal and at the start of the year it had one of the highest covid nineteen infection rates in europe. So how is the country making sure that they can keep the spread of the virus in check so that means cove restrictions remain in place for people arriving here. They wouldn't have to wear masks in public places but they'll be able to eat inside restaurants outside restaurants that helped me to to you through the night because they'll be shutting half tan.

I don't think we've seen this amazing green lights of a rush of people coming back but bit by bit people who obviously can afford it because we know the price of holidays and flights have gone up. And also victor. I guess what's interesting is here in portugal. They feel they've got a real advantage because they're on the uk's green list for travel in other words..

Probably you have her sure the moment That's not what I'm calling about So far. I haven't heard what I'm about to describe which I observed it took place in Portugal in the late fifties in the island off Madeira.

But I've had a lot of tribe reached out to try and get access to databases over there, but I've to no avail. So this idea of a five ft. Long D c three with propellers anything like that. Come to mind. Well, actually, yes. Um in in the late forties, there were reports of No craft looked at some of them looked like airplanes. Okay,.

The Friendliest Countries
"Is a fun episode. I'm not really sure it'll be on your list and guys this is why specifically. I'm gonna ask you to give us your list on instagram at extra packing peanuts. Let us know the from these countries because this is a term that can mean a lot of things with a lot of people and it's very dependent on your specific experiences in those countries right. Because you know everyone's going to have different experiences that was. That's what's fun about traveling. Someone could go to a country. That's there's someone aspect or i didn't. I didn't see this that friendly. It's because you're obviously having your own unique experiences. I have an honorable mention. Okay and i want this be on the list. And but i'm just gonna put on mention and then move on and maybe talk about a little later but australia. It's on my list. It's pretty high at my awesome perfect and then we can get into australia than that. Yeah we'll get into that okay. Cool well then here. We go each have five. We're gonna countdown again. We always tell you we. When we do the list episodes. I don't know how she doesn't know my so. There might be some crossover. I don't know what's on harris or where it is. She doesn't mind so and you always lead it off ladies first number five. My number five is cambodia. And i have to say that. This is because of one person individually the nicest human. We have ever met dr as. I have said this multiple times on other podcasts. that is boondi and there are other people in cambodia who are really nice too but boondi was driver the very first time that we went to cambodia and you know we have since seen him again. When we've been we've connection on social media you know we're facebook friends. He is one of the loveliest people we've ever met in the world and so therefore cambodia has to be on my list. Yeah he's the i will say. This is the nicest person i've met ever traveling. And i debate putting cambodia on the only reason i didn't was because we haven't had that much experience with a lot of other people. They're the people we have have been super friendly so again. This comes down to like. What are you considering. You know this gut reaction again. It was harder for me to make this list i think. Then he'll is the nicest human we have ever met and the gentlest soul. We've ever met and an absolutely phenomenal individual. That many of you listening. If you've been to cambodia and been to see him reap have used him as a driver before based on us recommending him and he is. Everyone has come back and said. Oh my gosh everything you say about plenty is completely true and you probably even under sell like i. I can't believe how nicest guy so if you go to see him reap. We have a post on our website. One extra peanuts take the two minutes to find it. Get his number and e-mail boondi you will be. It's the best two to three minutes you could ever because he will make your experience. Incredible and I can't wait for the day. That we get to see him and his wife and his family again because they are absolutely lovely people My number five. And i'm going to stay in that same region carry on because i put thailand on and i also have talent on my list but yeah we'll talk about it now just different cultures different people but a lot of similarities. Because you're in the same region and you know it's called the land of smiles and we have spent more time in thailand than than most other countries that we've been to and we have more people there just because the way we've traveled through. And you know everyone is just. They're just happy to to be a lot like there's a there's a happiness that permeates that culture where you could have someone who in our is you know is poor and and has job. Maybe we wouldn't want to do or something like that. And he's sitting on a boat cutting up pineapple as we're on a on a little trip out to this island and he's just smiling so big because he's just on a boat cutting pineapple and it's delicious and we're having a good time because reverend good time. This guy's having a good time. So thailand just overarching. -ly deserves its name. The land of smiles. yeah. I definitely agree with that. It's higher on my list. It's number two and every time we've been to thailand which has been quite a few times as trump said. We spent a lot of time there. One full month just in chiang mai meeting type people. They're always so friendly and we went to tie wedding. not uninterested. area was our friends hometown and we didn't know that many people there because it was her family and her friends of her family was huge. Like two hundred plus people. Everybody was so friendly than we actually went out after the wedding with some of her closest friends and it was just such an experience. Yeah we we've met so many wonderful friendly people thailand okay. So thailand's you're number two. But what's your number four my number four co stabby guy So we have been in costa rica now for two and a half months which is one of the longest times we've ever spent in another country. Of course right. I think this is the longest continuous. We've ever been in another country other than when we lived in japan. Yeah i think so and that being said everyone here is really friendly. And we don't wanna leave. I mean the eighty five and sunny and paul has to do with it. But the i mean all that's great but the people as everyone who's traveled knows. Yeah the people make the travel experience what it is and from the day we got here even actually before we got here. I was looking for a babysitter hours in like this. Tamarind facebook group like so many people are sending me. Hey this person that person you know. I was like wow. Everyone seems really really helpful. And then we got here and not only are people helpful. But they're just overly nice and same thing like heff foster her watch in the ocean and we put a thing on that facebook group again and saying. Hey we lost his watch and all these people were tagging this other guy who like two weeks before said he founded apple. Watch wasn't the same one but you know just random strangers are like trying to help us get this. And that's just the strangers. That's not even the amazing people that we've really bond with probably a lot of ex- ex- goes yeah but all the all of the local costa rican people who are called tikos yep. They are so friendly from the guard. Who is at our condo. Who the hell on how who speaks very little english but is so kind and so lovely and is so engaged with our children like it's the point where like of course we're we're walking a lot more leaving we're walking and he says hello you know like pure vida and what's up my friend but then even in the car leaving and he wants to come over to the car and we put the windows down he talks to the kids. The kids pounds. He is just wonderful. And that's just one person mean our nannies. Here are costa rica and they are lovely and so wonderful and having vitus to a birthday party and bring the kids crafts in toys for them to play on just like welcome us into their lives and it's just yet people are great. It's really nice very welcoming community and yet to the point that wit sometimes wakes up in the morning and he goes. Where's on hell is on l. out at the You know out at the entrance. Where the fords. I don't know we'll run out there to go find on l. First thing in the morning. So yeah i i'm with you. Costa rica definitely a magical place. And i think that when it don't look at my most are looking for the audio heather is blatantly. My list is off. The table have looked at his list. And so i followed and wear his vision by number four. I mean i guess at this point rica on your list and you just tell my number four interest. My number four is one. That i'm not sure i was happy to have this on the list. Because i'm not sure. It's going to make your list or nine and this and australia are very similar to me. In the way that the people like to just enjoy life and that is ireland. Okay yeah i know what. That's a good thought. That's a really is not on my list kind of forgot we went. There wasn't the first gut reaction country to be on my list. But when i looked at a map usually you and i will look at a map just to just kind of spur some inspiration and i pulled up the map when i was going through and i was looking at europe like spain. People are pretty nice. Portugal was really cool. Italy annex saw ireland and mike ireland. Yeah like to me some of the experience. We have an ireland per personify friendliness. Like they just want to have a crack right crack meaning a good time so you know irish are known for wanting to just have a good time. There was plenty of nights. We'd be sitting in pubs. Music would start flowing. People were talking like again. There is really open. Friendly and enj- enjoying life
How to Be Sad in a Healthy Way with Helen Russell
"Tell me about this new book of yours and a podcast. Because i was looking at it. This is slightly different because we'll slotting or maybe not so how to be sad. Yes so i so. I've been now researching into happiness for the last eight years and reedy will be academic literature and speaking to as many experts. Get my hands on and really following the growing movement in in. I guess i don't wanna quite use the attempt self-help but this idea of of what we can do. And how we can observe our in culture of cultures around the world to try to give us the best chance of of keeping mental health intact and Keeping ourselves feeling upbeat on a daily basis. But actually the more it was simplified perhaps for sound bites off line or the more The the the rest of the world decision economic climate was was not perhaps doing any of us any favors The movie becomes clung onto this idea of happiness. That in the last few years. When i have talked around the world when i've done interviews with people and i collected my own research as well as reading the research of others. It seemed to me that there was so much anxiousness about not being happy. The procedure happiness to become all encompassing. And actually people will quite phobic of being sad and this seems like a problem because of course we can't be happy all the time We can put structural things in place. We can lifestyle things in place to try to shore up our chances and to try to look after ourselves but no one is happy all the time. Sadness is a normal part of life. I felt more. If we try and deny sadness we do ourselves huge home and sadness actually can also bring some benefits so that that really set me to thinking. I think researching the atmosphere happiness. My my last book you mention Looking different cultural purchase. I realized this in the us and the uk a especially there is a real reluctance to to do. Saddest studies. show that but americans are kind of out lies in that design not to be sad unto to choose happiness and to to be happy to put on this kind of jazz hunts front which as we certainly seen in the last year if not the last forty five years life through some huge challenges Away and You know the state of the world. Even there is much to be sad about the things to be angry about and that has to be okay to we have to be in touch with those emotions too so i wanted to really explore that from a cultural perspective from a historical perspective And speaking to you near scientists and psychologists geneticists and and really trying to understand the processes that are going on and the noble phases that we go into when we tried to deny us address and then what to do about them and how to be sad in a healthy positive way so that was my goal. Yes the knee. I was really intrigued. When i was reading a book. About the difference of cultures and things like portugal and brazil and bhutan. Where you know sadness and crying and you know. Death is celebrated its part of the normal circle of life. Then perhaps where i come from in finland we are very stone faced and we don't cry outside of the family circles and some does not at all even front of our parents or parents. Don't cry front of the children. It's very much these macho kind of culture. So what can we learn from these other cultures. What can we put in place in our cultures in our societies to help us to deal with sadness and it be normal circle of life. Yeah i think it is. That is that normalizing. It is talking about it. It's it's showing children that it's okay to be sad and that they will be sad sometimes and not trying to minimize that so certainly when i was growing up in uk. Those idea that if you're crying you're told it's okay. Don't cry at so easy for them out to cry but actually we'll probably charges crying for a reason and that reason may not be the same as it would if it was an adult but to deny a child's feelings doesn't set a great template for somebody being emotionally intelligent in later life and being in touch with their emotions so it starting at a really early age letting children know that their feelings are okay and they are legitimate and how to handle them really I think parents can can model to kids. And and anyone who's spent time with children comodal that And then it is yeah. It's i spoke to a A few psychology said things like that they will recommend if you see a dead animal for example. You see roadkill even you. You don't try and hide it from your children. You sort of say. Oh that's uh sad. Isn't it look fox has been over or whatever And it's just being june two to the sadness that's that we feel and then once we adults if we didn't have that growing up then it's learning to kind of regulate our own emotions in doing it belatedly which is harder but it is possible by allowing time for ourselves and really sitting without sadness rather than trying to rush and lives with business and activities and scheduling things that defer the sadness. Because it's not going to go away but they differ it and this year i think has shown for many of us as the world has slowed down and we haven't been able to travel many of us That people people have really kind of had to come to terms of things that perhaps they have pushed away for for many years and that's hugely challenging. You used to doing that so there are things that you can do to help. Of course things like Getting exercise we know that that's good for positive mental health and bodies but are not doing. It is is bad for us so more than in terms of just exercise it if if people who feeling generally okay are sedentary between three and seven days we will start to develop low mood that some fascinating research about this. It's it's the meat was about trying to stop normal sadness from becoming a two. And b tipping over into something more serious and i'm very keen to differentiate of course between normal sadness that we all experience depression and i've been now with both of them and they are not the same thing but there is there is evidence to suggest that we can start normal fatness into something more serious by allowing for it and handling it in a mall helpful way.

Interview with Johnny Ball - Forget Me Knot Charity
"So. I read on your website that the alzheimer's society which is pretty much the mirror. Image of the alzheimer's association here in the states found that ninety percent caregivers experienced feelings of stress and anxiety weekly more like daily probably at least sixty percent of them struggle to talk about the impact of caregiving on their lives because of feelings of guilt. It's like. I can't complain about what. I'm going through because my loved. One has a tea or alzheimer's or whatever and so how can caregivers balance their needs and the needs of their loved. Ones in your opinion like know have we. Have you thought that one through as you launch charity. I think the as mansell. How things i i think the fittest into that. It's okay to feel the way you feel. I think a lot of as you just explained guilt and extreme sense of duty and which means the facebook does because the caring for fest often before themselves. That i think is important for the mental health of the unification which ben immediately impacts the wellbeing of the patient. They need to care for themselves as well. A member. the average duty of air to themselves as much as they have achieved care to the person benefitting asta and i think inaccessible and really letting mass inside. You know that that's true. I'm giving yourself giving his a brain give yourself the option to feel how you feel and to Except that you need to care about yourself. As well is the vista But also will be trying to do is using technology to support give keg. It's and a big audubon is gonna be a mental health technology so for example of mental health apps identity being used recently going to help with distribution bags. A lot of k gives also busy. just hanso. faux would they would is essentially a fulltime job. The have undergone find that you and i knew mental health apps imitation Love people appear gives won't have time to the studies. Things is important. We proactive in exclaiming walls amphion to help whether they are specialist tools. Okay games on. Otherwise i'm helping distribute them so that people off themselves as well as often careful. Yeah like. I've experienced a little bit today. You have the best laid plans for you know you got you to the list for the day and then you get up at breakfast time. Something blows up your morning. Pretty much caregiving goes. You know you think okay. Well i'll take my mom to the doctor or we'll go to the park or whatever and then you know they have a different idea or they're having a bad day and i do think that as my generation in you you must be a must be one of the old millennials. Right tracy four identified makes me millennials. Yeah you're in the middle. So i'm gen-x i'll be when this episode comes out. I'll be fifty four. I got a birthday at a week. I think yes a week. And it's like irrelevant is about this time and one of the things that i have found with a podcast which obviously is technology. Is that a lot of caregivers. They're older and they're just clueless. Even run across people that are about my age. There was a gal my the showed up. She needed a support group like now today and so she showed up his back in the old days. When you could meet in person. She showed up to my support group from twenty miles away from my old hometown. And i said oh. I've got the perfect solution for you. My podcast and i'm china's show her and of course. I have an iphone and android phone. So i was having troubles because i'm not familiar with that. And she has. Oh do those things anyway. And i'm like it would really help you because i talked to lake fantastic people and she just blew me off like whatever i. I don't have time to think about a podcast mike. It's the easiest way to get advice and information so i'm hoping as we you know. Move through my generation your generation that it won't be sent a challenge to use technology to support our caregiving needs and is your focus with the charity mostly on mental health apps no not specifically but focuses on technology. I saw the empty We can distribute technology broadly cheaply and it also is ideas. My day job. This is my specialty network can understand how whips we can for. Relatively low costs distributed. Old bills will put k gives in touch with the right technology. That's going to help them. So the impact probably won't be as great as for example to support group but the impact can be brewed. Sir podcast princeton's what you mappin fantastic you all of this information or these impact trees from his love of people. Don't know about the concept you're describing. I think we push push the different types of boulder available essentially build towns. You just saw people. I should have a fax. You know how did you decide. Well tell me about okay. Well we've talked kind. Roundabout it into the forget me not charity.

Portugal's Art and Architecture
"Let's start today's travel with rick. Steves in portugal. The architecture and the art of portugal to tell the story of that small country squeezed between spain and the atlantic ocean. You can wander through museums classical and romantic paintings to styles with the largest impact on portuguese painters or you can take in the beautiful. Blue azoulay zhou tiles. That ornament many of portugal's buildings to learn more about portugal's art and architecture. We're joined in our studio by two portuguese guides. Christina duarte and refco christina and raphael. Thanks for joining us. Average abuse here. Rick christina so often to understand the art of a country you need to understand its economy. There's money behind the art. How does money shape the art in the architecture of patrols. When you have money you want be surrounded by beautiful. Things actually is universal. Everybody wants to be surrounded by beautiful things. The thing is that you don't afford it many times and when you afford them you have them in portugal much money then because they have great art from five hundred years ago yes well. It is a combination of two major. Factors the fifteen hundreds with the discovery. Spirit that allowed us to have for the first time money enough for our trade with many places in the world so automatically the royalty had many the nobility had money and the church have many and the coincidence is that your have money and you have also religion behind it so which. She's being major catholic. Contrary in thinking that you want to give your best and you'll beauty to your your glorify gone exactly to glorify god so They were two kinds of ways of spending that money in art. Which was the private and that will be for palaces that nobody will see and to god in churches and i consider that public art so review. All you have this money coming in from the trade in fact the churches were actually nicknamed spice churches. How how does the space tie into the building of churches. Well when portugal arrived to places like india and china and we started to bring all of these new products. Back to portugal. They revolutionized portugal they revolutionized our economy and from there on the society started to change and that is one of the interesting aspect of art is that it reflects the other dimensions of society. So the spices. There were They were a major factor. For example the jeronimos monastery that began to be built precisely with the money that came from the spices. Which bases were these that were so valuable. So you had Pepper you had cinema And many others in christina. Why would people spend so much money for pepper and cinnamon app to preserve no sleaze to preserve refrigeration also to Pigments of any kind for linen. Or tying dying yes. it was something exotic. It was different. People never seen it before. So imagine the first time you are smelling coffee or you're tasting pepper or you're smelling cinema. Imagine the impact that you had imagined how it sparked your imagination so the wealthy people would want this. It would be titillating for them now. You mentioned the monastery at toronto's same just outside of lisbon b. l. e. m. I believe that was men. Welland style architecture. What is men whalen. What we're does that word come from so The men willing style is named after our kingman. Well actually the name was given only in the nineteenth century during the romantic period but kingman while he was one of the most important kings during our age of exploration so he ruled from the time of columbus until fifteen twenty began to rule in fourteen ninety five until the fifteen twenty s in the nineteenth century. They figured out that. We had a several monuments throughout portugal. That shared the same characteristics. So what are the characteristics. If you look at the front of a church what will you see and you go. Oh that's men welland from fifteen twenty so the manor line is late gothic style so you have the basic structure of the gothic and then over that basic structure of the gothic. You have a very specific declaration. You have for example. Maritime mothes you have the strong. Heraldic of manuel specially to miller rece- fear so that the coat of arms of the royal family and then themes from the sea because the money came from the see exactly like the rope the rope a rope with an art. He's a very very important symbol of maryland.

In the thick of the industrial revolution. The shampoo was also meant to be a place of modern business. Many of the buildings that went up here were from the same era as early skyscrapers from say chicago or new york. The task of urban planners like soda and architects cow d was to use the new industrial technology but also to create order and beauty. They built with iron beams and concrete then faced with decorative elements to create art. Still the street is not what i'd call art so let's hurry back to the block of discord.

"The archives the plaza del triumphal and the golden age. You're standing at ground. Zero of spain's golden age. Imagine the scene in the fifteen and sixteen hundreds when this was where businessmen from all over. Europe gathered to trade in the exotic goods that poured in from the new world. Sevi- within land seaport on the guadalquivir river became the gateway to the new world. Explorers like amerigo. Vespucci and ferdinand magellan sailed from here ships returned laden with gold silver cocoa and tobacco for more than a century. Severe was the only port licensed to trade with the new world. All of the wealth of that vast continent flowed into europe through savia by the year. Sixteen hundred severe was the largest and wealthiest city in all of spain. Start walking heading between the cathedral and the archives building back in the early fifteen hundreds this space on the south side of the cathedral was an open air market. Merchants gathered at the stone cross. Yeah i can see stone cross up ahead. This is where they swear to god to be honest in their trade by fifteen eighty. Three business was so good that they needed a better place to conduct their affairs. So the archives building was built. It was a kind of early stock market in banking center where the age of exploration was financed it also housed map makers seek captains and navigators as well as politicians who administered spain's colonies. The building was designed by juan de herrera. The spanish kings personal architect. Wasn't he the guy who also did the famed royal palace of madrid el escorial indeed lisa. In for the archives harare created a pragmatic no nonsense structure notice there are only a few ornaments symmetrical doors and windows balustrades and those distinctive rooftop pinnacles. It's one of the finest renaissance structures in all of spain and it evokes the greatness of the spanish empire at its peak as you approach the end of the archives building. Take note on the left. Is the tourist entrance into the cathedral again. We will not be going inside on this tour. No just keep walking straight heading toward the patch of greenery in the plaza up ahead in seventeen eighty five. The archives building was transformed from its original function as a stock exchange to what it is today and archives it houses historic papers related to spain's overseas territories. It's four miles of shelving. Have some eighty million pages documenting this once-mighty empire well little of interest is actually on show. A visit here is free. It's easy and it gives a look at its impressive interior when you reach that patch of greenery stop find a nice shady spot where you can enjoy the statues here as well as the find buildings around you. You're in the middle of the pleasant del. Triumphal surrounding you are three of sylvia's most important buildings the the archives and marked by the kessel like wall the alcazar. No wonder this area on the south side of the cathedral was such a hub of spanish power. It's where the royal palace business community and the cathedral all came together. Here's another way to think of it. These three buildings represent the three great cultural strains that created sevi- the alka casare represents sevilla's morrish roots the cathedral ads. The christian strain and the archives some symbolized severe economic and cultural power in the golden age as a result by the sixteen. Hundreds seville was not just spain's biggest and wealthiest city. but also its most cultured. Make your way towards the toll pillar in the midst of the hedges. It's topped with a statue of guess who the virgin mary. They sure love their virgins here. The golden age made severe a center of the arts home to painters like diego. Velazquez and by ptolemy maria find the statue of maria at the base of the virgin pillar. He's the statue facing the cathedral. Marino proudly holds his palette twelve thinking about his next brush stroke. Mario gained fame. Sylvia's beloved virgin. Mary in fact the virgin on top of the pillar was patterned after a famous painting by merill. There's another virgin statue nearby. You may be able to see it from here. It stands on a pillar in front of the archives building. She's known as the virgin of triumph. The statue depicts the virgin. Mary helping the city miraculously triumph over an earthquake that notorious quake of seventeen fifty five totally destroyed lisbon rattled avia and the statue gives this plaza the plaza of triumph so via may have been spared the earthquake but by the seventeen hundreds. The city was in serious decline. The harbor was silting up in the city of cadiz was becoming. Spain's main port trade routes shifted and plagues devastated the region. Sylvia was falling from spain's wealthiest city to a sleepy town of atmospheric back lanes which will visit in a moment but first check out the imposing stone walls of one of savannah's greatest site the royal alcazar royal alcazar and the patio of the ben. Deras the is ours is sprawling royal palace with extensive gardens all ornamented with his lung flair. For a thousand years. This palace has been a lavish home for spain's rulers originally attend century castle for the morrish rulers. Still as one of the spanish royal family's official residences the best in europe that still in use sounds like everyone loves sylvia including the king on this tour. We won't be going inside the al-qatar but let's get a glimpse of it facing the castle like alka walls. The tourist entrance is to the right of that wall. But we'll be entering through a door in the wall so face the wall and veer left at ten o'clock angle as you approach the wall start looking for an opening in the wall above. The doorways arch is a ceramic plaque. With spain's royal coat of arms it reads realize alka czars. This is an imposing entrance for what was essentially a kessel goes through the gate passing through the alcazar wall. You emerge into a large courtyard. It's lined with orange trees and surrounded by white buildings with that distinctive goldenrod trim. This courtyard is part of the l. Khazar it originally served as a military parade ground the barracks surrounding it. How is the kings bodyguards. It's called the bandera cartier. Hard as in antonio no bandera us as in flags start walking heading for the far left corner of the courtyard. The khazar has elements from every part of savannah's thousand story. The rooms even though was built by christian rulers are decorated in the fence mortgage style that means scalloped arches courtyards with reflecting pools and lush gardens.

A statue of columbus faces the barcelona the place where he sailed in in triumph. It was columbus's discoveries that launched the golden age of a new european superpower spain. Ironically that triumph for spain spelled doom for catalonia. Turn your attention to the building. To the left of the royal palace this is known as the viceroy's palace it was built in the fifteen hundreds by the viceroy that is the servant of the new power in town spain. So in a way. This building represents the rise of spain and the decline of ever gone catalonia and the city of barcelona. Catalonia became swallowed up into greater.

Barcelona's royal palace was demoted to a small regional residents. Meanwhile power in barcelona went to the spanish kings viceroy and catalonian money went to build his lavish new residence. Step into the courtyard. Inside is a delightful. Renaissance courtyard fit for a spanish viceroy. Do the right gaze up at a staircase with a fine coffered would ceiling. This building has been important through the years as well as serving viceroy it also became a powerful center for the catholic church as the headquarters of the local inquisition.

And the like to learn more about this. Portuguese obsession with dried cod. I talked with my friend. Alex astor how it came to be that cod so important to portuguese cuisine. It's not easy to explain that. one z. We have a lot of fish to kind of weird the fact that we love a fish that we don't have because we never had caught fish in our waters. Codfish of course likes cold waters. We don't have that so the explanation is that were fisherman's country so we've been fishing all over the world and in fifteen hundred. We went to place called new villains up in canada canada exactly and so the descriptions of what they found. There are pretty amazing. Talk about not being able to move their votes because there was so much fish. So of course. The portuguese pretty excited with this. They brought huge amounts of that but they had to preserve it and how they do it like this soldier and dry and so. That's the tradition hearing fortunate to have it like this sold it and dry it comes salted and dried originally so they preserve it so these days. How do people actually cook it so now these days we have more than three hundred recipes with it really loved this cut. It's like these are like pieces of woodham of you. Put it in water one to three days depending on the size. Then if you really know how to cook it Like my mother. Does you put it in a bit of milk to get soft and then you cook it these days. Of course it will be much easier to have the fresh card but the thing is we don't like it. We only liked the salted one. So that's the one. We have even on christmas eve. We have the salted caught. That's a tradition to have it with your family. And i love it all i. It's absolutely amazing. And tourist want to enjoy that at a restaurant. what do we look for. What do we order in the restaurant.

You'll find a big white church. Find a spot to view the church where you can see both its facade and it's long side.

Garra as you walk uphill on rua to protect your jockeying with busy lisbon traffic. I asked my friend christina. Who's lived in lisbon all her life hell. Local pedestrians make their way across such busy streets. Here's what she had to say. First of all you have to know where traffic comes. You never run. You look to the driver on the ice and then you cross all you just want to make eye contact you end. Basically never run because the the driver will not allow drivers. The did otherwise drive it. We'll never know where you are going to keep making your way up. Ruhe depressed to check out your surroundings. The busy streets. The shops the upper floor apartments these practical features of modern life are exactly what ball had in mind when he laid out the city after the earthquake. Yes you're walking through the heart of pompeo's baisha. He wanted a city that was both beautiful and functional. A style locals call pump lean. The buildings are mostly uniform. Five stories tall. With similar features there are rectangular windows and look alike balconies made from wrought iron. These grid like buildings echoed the by grid plan. Streets pump all built for business. He put shops on the ground floor and apartments and offices above much as it is today tumbles priority after the seventeen fifty five quake was to rebuild fast and cheap but there was one more thing he also made sure the buildings headstone firewalls and flexible would be infrastructure that so they could survive the next earthquake. Keep going uphill along rua Making your way toward the big statue up ahead. A generation after palm ball in the eighteen. Hundreds lisbon could afford a few luxuries. Some of the buildings along here got colorful tower as you see. This added a touch of beauty plus it helped insulate against the hot sun.

Names the by show was built by military engineers whose experience was in building garrison towns overseas. The architecture was made of interchangeable prefab building blocks. You could load those on a ship. Direct them fast and easy and distant lands. that's why you'll see very similar. Pummeling buildings in portugal's former colonies like brazil and mozambique. The baisha today is changing. Notice that the upper floors of many buildings the apartments are empty. Lisbon's downtown population is shrinking. As more and more people are moving to the suburbs.
