This was taken from Lisbon, “looking” towards the south. It illustrates the gap between the north bank of the Tagus river (Lisbon) and the south bank, depreciatively know as “the desert” (as in not-Lisbon, and where yours truly lives…), inhabited by the “less fortunate”. If your’re not from Lisbon, it’s a East End / West End kind of thing as for London, or New York / New Jersey if you want to put it in USA terms.
I was born in Lisbon and moved to the “desert” after marrying and I quite like it. Hence the blog name 😉
More to follow on how the name was coined. It involves a member of a former government and an airport.
