Photographer's Note

The Barbearia Benfica, in Mindelo, Cape Verde, uses the name of the most popular Portuguese football/soccer team. This barbershop is older than modern marketing and merchandising methods, but the name Benfica promotes business either in Portugal or former colonies, where that team is quite popular too.
These two doors open to the same room. They are open - for business and for natural air conditioning. The woman is a worker there.
Benfica team website: S.L. Benfica.
O Benfica é tão popular em Cabo Verde como em Portugal. Aqui está uma prova disso: o nome é usado por uma velha barbearia na cidade do Mindelo, ilha de São Vicente.
Nota: não tenho nada a ver com o clube nem gosto de futebol.
