Se Mi Xo

I notice that the Thai Elephant is now the Se Mi Xo restaurant - anyone brave enough to have tried it ?

First time I saw it, driving past quickly, I thought it was the Mi Se Xo - possibly an oriental gentleman's club :lol:

Re: SUNGLASSES

I totally agree Alf but there are two major problems - the Portuguese (and many other countries) do not consider it to be of high priority and it is sometimes difficult without special analysing equipment to separate the fakes from the genuine article. Some even have the CE (Chinese example ?) Europ...

Re: SUNGLASSES

Yes there are a lot of fake Raybans around so only buy from an authorised agent. Having said that, you are paying for the name with Rayban - there are superior, cheaper versions around. If you are interested I stock top quality sunglasses at €75 which retail at £95 in U.K. because I have the Iberian...

Re: Processional caterpillars

It appears that the only safe way of getting rid, apart from expensive and non-discriminitory chemicals, is to burn them. presumably with a blow torch or paint stripper. However cover up and wear gloves in case the irritative hairs blow about. According to folklore if you form the chain into a circl...

Re: Singing Group

There is apparently a singing group in Lagoa.
If you contact retired singing/piano teacher Marganne at margannemeiklem@gmail.com she should be able to give you details.
I have explained the situation to her.

One problem is parking in town which cuts out most of the places mentioned by smudger. Rosa's bar in Sesmarias (cheap) and the bars at Monte Carvoeiro (averag...
