Photographer's Note

The Furnas valley is an echanted place where people live amidst hot springs, water bubbles from fissures in the ground.
As a child I spent several weeks in this very small town(no more than 4500 residents)during the summer and spring. Some of the natural springs have therapeutic elemnts and almost everyone in the town can tell you which spring to drink from to help with a stomach ache, or a headache. In some of the small streets we can still see the house kesys on the locks this so that the neighbors can come in if they need anything when the home maker isn't home.

Fom the web "- In the town of Furnas the “Caldeiras”, are even more spectacular. Many openings in the earth sprout geysers of boiling hot water. The medicinal mud and the faucets of mineral waters of various tastes and temperatures are all conditions which make “Furnas” one of the richest hydrologic regions in Europe."
