Yesterday, while taking a trip up to Piódão, we happened across a couple of instances of fly-tipping. Not uncommon in Portugal. We’re quite into fly untipping, but the small diesel Opel Corsa we’d hired for this visit just wasn’t up for the idea of shoehorning 2 pallets into the back. At least, not without leaving one of the children behind, or incurring surcharges for reshaping the vehicle. A shame as these would have made a good 50% of a compost bin.
But we did manage to collect some broken kitchen and bathroom tiles from a heap unceremoniously dumped in a bramble patch off the edge of a precipitous drop somewhere near Monte Frio.
Cleaning up the countryside as well as recycling! Double Brownie points! Though I think I’ve just lost one for being gratuitously smug about it.
Meanwhile, Aonghas and Oonagh have been experimenting with mosaics for our yet-to-be-built solar shower.
