ancestral village...


This old village--

not a single house

without persimmon trees.

Matsuo Basho - translated by Robert Hass

How I love those church towers and the green all around!
It's a lovely Portuguese typical interior village hopefully not reduced to a couple of aged souls who are drying up like the land they are from! **
