Lisboa em destaque no "The Guardian"


"When asked to think of the world's great shopping cities, few people would automatically suggest Lisbon. London, New York, Paris, yes. Marrakech even. But Lisbon?"

"I had already been told that I would love A Vida Portuguesa (Rua Anchieta 11, avidaportuguesa.com). Its walls are lined with soaps, oils, toothpastes, petroleum jelly in retro boxes and store cupboard staples such as Zelly's flour. Run by Portuguese journalist Catarina Portas, this shop is lovely. I walked out with armfuls of Zelly products, as well as a sardine grill for the barbecue, a stunning, iridescent ceramic sardine, tins of sardines, a stove-top toast maker, bright orange and red melamine plates and piles of Couto toothpaste and petroleum jelly in bright orange and black boxes."

Numa altura em que já está tudo farto do "bota abaixo"... isto são "perles de pluie, venues des payes où il ne pleut pas"!


Beijinhos com saudades de ouvir Jacques Brel :)
