|Lime (cal, in portuguese), is an alkaline white substance, solid at natural temperatures. When exposed to the infernal temperature of the Summer of the southern Iberian (especially the hinterland) Peninsula, it will, like other white coloured substances do, reflect the heat coming from the sun.
I remember painting walls with lime. It's a white rock that you put in water, then it starts making boiling sounds and bubbles. Finally, when it's ready, it looks exactly like the chemical paints we use today to totally destroy our waters and our beautiful planet.
The photo was taken in Monasaraz, Alentejo, a medieval city built on a mountain.|
