The end result is so enchanting... the unique mosaic sidewalks and walkways of Portugal. I am always fascinated with these works of art. These mosaic designs are truly works of art.
But the upkeep is tough. It is a labor intensive job. As you see in the photo, each block is worked into the sand and then the next and so on.
Unfortunately, I hear that most companies are not getting many new trained workers as the older ones retire.
I can not even imagine Portugal without their mosaic sidewalks. They are one of my favorite Portuguese works of art.
I stood there in Aveiro and watched the worker, really an artist, repair the pattern.
I just hope that Portugal can continue to repair their beautiful sidewalks (even though I can tell you they are slippery).
