After founding the Amigos do Museu de Trajo in São Brás de Alportel, Peter and I decided that we should concentrate on historical and cultural events, and centre our activities in Tavira and Lagoa. It seemed to us that many expatriates know next to nothing about the history and culture of their adopted country, and to overcome this lacuna, we now arrange monthly historical and cultural talks, and have recently also begun guided historical walks in Tavira.
