This is a cool shot. Could be on a hotel wall, or in a cafe!!
Tom Wilson: Lots like it in Portugal - at least among the older buildings.

I like the external tiles, Tom...attractive and low maintenance!

Oh I really love that - and your photo of it!

So THAT'S why they use the tiles! Well, then. Good for them to be so creative in the process.
Tom Wilson: Yes - the sun and the heat bounce off - decorative and practical smile

Tom Wilson: Imported from Brazil originally it seems!
