  1. They ought also to start fining the licensed tours for excess noise.

    I was walking along the side of a quiet wide dirt track near Santo da Serra and heading away from a levada when – with both loud music and completely unnecessary repeated blaring of horns – two 4×4 jeeps jammed pack with tourists came along the road.

    I’d prefer them to be fined than mountain bikers.
