A room with a view

if anyone told us that from a room at an abandoned hotel at sete cidades, s.miguel (azores) you could almost see paradise, we hardly believe it. open your mind because stuff like this can happen in azores – nature surpasses us at every inch of itself. one of many azorean legends says that there was a forbidden love between a blue eyed princess and a green eyed prince from different kingdoms in the island. in despair, both cried incessantly filling the crater of extinct volcanos with their tears, in which today lays down the blue and green lagoons of sete cidades. in days like the one we got, with few clouds, the colors are as intense as our desire for an happy end for this love. s.miguel, azores | april 2016
