Back in 1999...


During my 2-week stay at Ilhas Desertas (11 nautical miles off Madeira), which can be translated to Deserted Islands, I saw... zero monk seals. I thoroughly watched the ocean for 5 hours a day on specific spots... still, not a glimpse. Bear in mind, though, that the small population of 20+ seals (in 1999) is spread in a natural reserve with 24000 acres.

Find the spot where this photo was taken in Google Maps:

Estás a progredir bem, Pedro!
Daqui a nada tens uma agência de viagens.
Espreitei os vizinhos (que raio de ideia!) e quase fui ao Canadá de comboio...
Tudo a despropósito da Madeira e da Grécia que puseste «no ar». O que é que virá aí???
