Serra Da Arrabida Trek 13
Portugal

This image shows the Tróia peninsule and the Setúbal city down below. Unfortunatelly, this vew is completelly spoiled by the huge scar left in the sierra by Secil concrete factory that you can see parts of it.

It's always nice to do a family trek, even if is on your own backyard;-)

From granddaddy to grandson, all came for a walk in the wilderness of the Serra da Arrábida.
The adventure turned out well with the discovery of the elusive Arrábida Waterfalls and the not so great scar made by the Secil concrete factory.

This scar left us with a bad feeling though, if this is what Man is doing to this beautiful sierras, what will be left in the end?

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
