Regional Lemon Festival moves online

FN report that the Regional Lemon Exhibition, which celebrates its 19th edition this year, will take place on April 17 and 18, in the Freguesia da Ilha, Santana, in an online format, with no public presence, just live transmission through the channel and through the social network Facebook.

Casa do Povo da Ilha, the organizer of the event, is preparing “an entertainment program aimed at all ages and generations, as well as bringing together all the conditions for this tribute to farmers, agriculture, and lemon to attract many visitors to the digital world so that they can accompany our party in the security of their homes”. The program includes, as has been the prerogative of this event, a technical lecture, dance, sports, humor and quality musical shows.

“I spent lockdown on a Portuguese island”

Interesting article in the Guardian yesterday entitled “I spent lockdown on a Portuguese island”. Not one of the usual suspects, but the sandy island of Armona, off the Algarve, which has been home to one of their journalists since Covid’s second wave.

  1. Igen kellemes sétákra emlékszem, csakúgy mint az ott töltött nyaralások egyéb emlékeire. Sajnos a Madeira Regency Palace- béli apartmanunkat ellopta a tulajdonos, és az üres hotelt csődbe vitte. Senki nem ágált ellene, és megúszta az a gazember, azóta is milliomosként, szabadon éli az életét. Ez egyébként a portugál és az uniós jogrend gyöngye!
    I remember very pleasant walks, as well as other memories of my vacations there. Unfortunately, our apartment in Madeira Regency Palace was stolen by the owner and the empty hotel was bankrupt. No one branched out against him, and that villain, who has been a millionaire ever since, lives his life freely. By the way, this is the pearl of the Portuguese and EU legal order!

  2. On our first visit to Madeira 16 years ago we initially tried to book the Regency Palace as it showed up with a very reasonable price on the Mercury brochure but were told on calling the price was a misprint so changed the booking to The Girassol where we have, except for Covid ban this year, spent 3 glorious weeks in January feeling more like family than hotel guests on an Island we fell in love with from the first moment
