Here in Lisbon the night of Saint Anthony is celebrated in style. Throughout the city there are parties and - can you imagine? - private parties in the streets. Colour is everywhere the smell of basil is wonderfull! Late in the afternoon there is no longer traffic and the streets fill up with people, people, people that never ends. Tradition suggests a journey to see the popular parades, and friends a trip to a jigging. The following day there are almost no traces of the party, and next to the Saint Anthony's church people await for the procession.
I like the Bica neighborhood, and maybe next year I'll have a more active participation... ;)
