A regular customer

Statue of Fernando Pessoa, Lisbon, May 2017

Portuguese poet, Fernando Pessoa, was a regular customer at Cafe A Brasileira in Lisbon’s Largo do Chiado. And he is now a permanent visitor in the form of this bronze statue, which has been sitting there since 1988.

At the moment, however, Pessoa is under wraps while they relay the beautiful calçada tiles.
