By this time, Southern Portugal displays a typical Mediterranean Summer landscape. The dry grass turns the land yellow-brown while olive and cork trees remain heroically dark green. It was only mid-June when I took these photos and the temperature was already 32 ºC (90 ºF). But since the air is dry one can bear the heat as long as there is some shadow to rest under.
