A Little Farm in a Big City

2

Once upon a time there was a small, little, tiny farm in a big, large... and really not-that-huge city. :)

Quinta Pedagógica dos Olivais is a small farm in Lisbon. I think it intends to give city folks contact with the life in the countryside, especially children. It shows city kids animals that they probably would never see otherwise and it’s a pleasant place to spend the afternoon.

The last time I went to this place I wanted to take pictures of the animals, mostly cows. In the end I didn’t pay much attention to the cow, I totally fell in love with the goats! They are so friendly and it seems that they enjoy posing!

The white horse is the star of the farm for sure. He is beautiful and fond of human contact too!

The baby pigs are very cute and I found the signs with their birth dates on the pens very sweet for some reason. :)

The donkeys were the ones that seemed more unfit to me. I’m not sure if they enjoy it as much as the others but all the animals seemed well treated. I think they are very pretty too.

It is a perfect place for children and you can see signs of them everywhere. The scarecrows are really cool and were most probably made by them.

I must confess I’m not very fond of visiting places where animals are kept in captivity but this farm looked like a good place to me. As a city person that likes animals and nature, I’m really thankful for places where I can easily go to have a bit of contact with them.

The entrance is free if you just want to visit and it is possible to arrange activities and tours. You can see more information here

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

    Valeriie Liin and The Cameras She Brings

    There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.

    This is a tribute to one of the most famous French social and street photographers, Robert Doisneau. During his life he was able to capture many little moments of everyday Parisian life with humanity and grace. His photos, full of poetry and humor, tell the ordinary life in the suburbs of the big French capital, away from the richest central areas of the city. Read more after the jump!

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
