About Francisco...


Dear Postcrossers,
I am a retired teacher of Philosophy, and came back to Armacao de Pera, today a great touristic centre with beaches. It is located on a broad bay that stretches from Ponta da Gale to Senhora da Rocha. Its beaches extend from Praia dos Pescadores ( Fishermen´s Beach) to Beijinhos Beach. On the east lies the Fishermen's village in whose area existed the sardine and tunny fishing base (Armação) that gave it the first part of its present name. Today Armação de Pera occupies a large area, having developed inland. Early in the 20th century, it became a sea-side and summer resort.
I have no hobbies except postcrosssing. I have a depression and It is difficult to find moments which make me happy. Because of my illness I had to retire before the age of retirement.
What I would like to know about other places is their culture, history and art.
Finally I would say that I don't mind at all to receive postcards that are not from members' countries and home made cards are welcome.
I moved recently from my native village, Armação de Pera, to Portimão,18 kms to the west.
If possible, please send me some stamps, which are not for me. Thank you in advance.
