I am in that kind of mood this afternoon having had to spend €75 at the dentist! This example in Avenida da Liberdade just outside the SPAR supermarket this evening.

In another life on the last day of high school some of the chaps lifted a teachers mini and put it nose to tail between a tree and a wall leaving no manoeuvring room. Seemed such a hoot at the time. Rather childish now.
It is no coincidence that in no known language does the phrase 'As pretty as an Airport' appear. Douglas Adams

Last night in Rua 1º Dezembro. This was quite deliberate parking as the wheels were chocked!

It is pretty filthy. Perhaps it has been semi abandoned? Future reports welcome.

FWIW, a car was abandoned across the kerb outside my house in Gtr Manchester last year.
Obviously stolen/driven/left to rot by a scrote.
It took the authorities more than six months to shift it.

Camara stuck a notice on the van....basically "If not removed within 5 days, the Camara will remove it."

The notice is dated 21st July......unsurprisingly, the van is still there!!!
