My daughter Sofia at the Botanical Garden of the University of Coimbra, in Portugal. Minha filha Sofia no Jardim Botânico da Universidade de Coimbra, em Portugal.

San Sebastian Aqueduct, built during the reign of King Sebastião (1557-1578), is also known as the ‘Arches of the Garden’. It is located in front at the Botanical Garden. O Aqueduto de São Sebastião foi construído no reinado de D. Sebastião (1557-1578), conhecido popularmente como os "Arcos do Jardim", está localizado em frente ao Jardim Botânico da Universidade de Coimbra.

Hi Sonia, magnificent set of pictures by Sofia, the place looks so inviting and peaceful. Sorry for not answer soon, but you know, never is enough time besides work. The links that you include in your mail, don't open nothing. Otherwise, there is a lot of time that not need to use HTML for post pictures in the blog, because of the new template, and there is in many formats, by example, the one I use of just a single and central column, only permits images of no more than 940 pixels wide, so I reduce the pictures for that blog in Photoshop to less than 940 px. The images used in your posts are more wider than 940, you want it bigger? I sincerely don't know how, because of the limits of Blogger. I suggest that give it a try with the other new templates, I'm sure you will find a new way to present your ideas. Sorry again, for not be more useful. Abrazos

É um passeio que muitos esquecem de fazer ou porque é pouco divulgado para os turistas. Muito bom, Sônia!! As fotos como sempre lindas e gostei de saber desse lugar!! Boa semana!! Beijus,

Sonia, tudo bem?

Que linda que está a Sofia.

Ela está de férias por lá? E o pequeno principe?

Lindas as imagens que ela fez. Lindo este jardim em Coimbra. Me lembro da série dos Maias que assisti aqui em casa no mês passado. E pude ver como Portugal é lindo!
No Rio de Janeiro tb tempo um Jardim Botânico que também nao fica atrás deste ai nao.

Te desejo uma linda semana

Your daughter is so beautiful! wow, 1500's I'm trying to wrap my mind around that! what history you have! I was pondering Mary Cabot Wheelwright this week (a woman...a friend of O'Keefe) who made New Mexico her second home and was active against the whites taking Native American kids to boarding schools and learning Chrisianity...and then your link for the Underground Reading NYC...oh, I got caught there for a while. The variety of people, the love of books, and, simply, everyone has a story...other than the one they are reading ;)

Paz said...

Oh! How lovely!

Photo Cache said...

thanks for the tour, tell your daughter.

What a beautiful daughter and stunning surroundings. Historical places are so important. Here in NYC..we are losing many of the original places and they are being replaced with glass and metal structures. Have a great day!!

Just lovely, Sonia! Beautiful!

Al said...

Thanks for all the nice comments, Sonia. To answer your question, I am not a musician (I don't have the dexterity to properly play an instrument) but I love music and try to go to a few concerts each year.

Wyatt said...

Wonderful pictures, thank you for sharing them.

Susan Campisi said...

Your daughter inherited your eye for beauty, Sonia. The photos are gorgeous.
