Just home from an evening walk along the Sado River. Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution here in Portugal. In AlcΓ‘cer do Sal tonight Rui Veloso will be on stage beside the Sado at 10:00pm with fireworks at midnight…and then the party goes on until the early hours.

I don’t know how much I will manage to see tonight, but we were treated to a sound check by Rui on our walk. The first time that I have heard his music, and I liked it.
