A small taste of Horta (Azores)

Here’s a small taste of Horta. The photos are shot around Terminal Maritimo in Horta, Faial Island, Açores, Portugal.

As always when you’re on holidays, it comes to an end and you realize that you have to return to your horrible daily life where your pointless job eats up most of the time and days. People just can’t seem to get out of slavery, and at the same time they seem to be happy with it:

“Praise the lard. Hallelujah, I hope the Yankees win this year, who will you vote for this election?, the weather is really something, etc, et fucking cetera”…

On the bright side it’s only 111 days until I can enjoy some freedom again.

“Horta is a single municipality and city in the western part of the Archipealgo of the Azores, encompassing the island of Faial. Horta has a population of about approximately 15,038 people (2011 census) and an area of 173.1 square kilometers. The population density is about 88 persons per square kilometer. The city of Horta itself has a population of about 7,000.”

    • Of course this won’t ever happen, but:
      We can cut down all the useless paper-moving jobs. perhaps also consume and produce less crap. That way we can share jobs that are needed and we can all have more time that we can spend with family and friends. *dreaming*

  1. Great shots 😀 and hey at least you got to go to the Azores, all we got was a trip to Edmonton for the weekend where a nice Portuguese lady made us some fish, and now we have new friends at that bistro who will cook us whatever kind of Portuguese food we want if we call ahead – but… I’m thinking the weather was probably a lot nicer where you were than it was in Alberta 😉

    • Actually it was a lot of rain and clouds, but we’re used to it from the Norwegian summer we had this year.
      The Azores is in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and the weather changes quickly there.

  2. These great shots all fit together like pieces out of a puzzle. Must be time soon for the work performance review . . . . sorry! Really I am.
