Going for a cup of cha?

cup of cha?

You might go to this cafe in Porto, Portugal for a cup of tea. I always thought “cup o’ cha” was a Cork or Irish slang expression but a quick Google shows it used in the UK too.
In Portugese the word “chá” means tea so when I saw this cafe that sign was the first thing I noticed!

Maybe I was just thinking of Cha and Miah..

Social Distancing with a Locker

This is one way to social distance

Porto, Portugal, November 2019. Long before SARS-CoV-2 hit Europe. Street photography feels like a forbidden art now that we are all at home and we’re not allowed on the streets in any numbers.

* You obviously should not walk around with a locker like this. STAY AT HOME!
