Ponta Delgada Embarcadero
Ponta Delgada on Sao Miguel, took us by surprise as a very modern, European city. I guess, as a small island we were expecting less height and modest public infrastructure. It's very compact, walkable and we felt absolutely safe. Although we were also grateful to be there in winter as we heard about the crowds of tourists off Cruise ships which inundate the city with up to three ships at a time in peak season.
The waterfront embarcadero reminded me of Havana and the sketch I did there a couple of years ago.
