#364 - Chestnut vendor



In autumn streets and squares of lisbon are invaded by wheeled coal braziers, in which chestnuts are roasted and then sold to passers-by. the braziers produce a warm, pleasant scent of roasted chestnuts as well as clouds of white smoke, which rise in the air making lisbon look a mysteriously magical place. this photo shows lisbon's downtown, between figueira square and rossio square.

I've never had a roasted chestnut, but I wouldn't mind trying one of hers.

Great shot and wonderful post!
