Não pessoa, não carrinho, não cow!

Half a year has passed since we arrived in Portugal. We haven't cycled a lot. Maybe we got put of by this sign... it's the first one we've come across that is trying to tell cows to stay away.

The Ecovia is still falling apart, so we took to the hills and valleys.

Spring in the Algarve was full of wildlife...

Our friend Joao from Maozorra invited us to play at Marionetas em Oeiras close to Lisbon. We was very happy to be on the road for a week with our bikes and we had buckets of fun in Oeiras, playing, meeting all the children from the neighbourhood, watching puppets from all over the world!

We came away inspired and ready to make a new show!

Virtual reality is encroching on real reality... the conceptualism of health and safety, the surrealism of bicycle theatre, umbrellas and cats...

Oh dear! Which is which?

Surrealism is the natural order of things... for us cyclists anyway.

The first one we like.... the latter, paradoxically we don't, as it is a sticker more than often pasted on to the back of peoples petrol guzzling machines.
