Great shots! Is that laundry hanging out in the first pic?

Thank you! First and last shot has laundry hanging out.I love to shot it.
Today it was told me that Alfama means mouth or gate in arab.

Btw: All Portuguese words that begins with "Al" are arab, like Alfama, Algarve, Alentejo... and many, many more.

So many wonderful things to see here. I am nosey by nature and I just love to see what's going on! So different to the way we live. You;ve got a good eye for scenes that will be interesting. I love the time worn stairs and the washing. Are they mosaic tiles and wooden windows in the 2nd to last photo?
