The Easter Bunny is a fantasy character depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. Originating among German Lutherans, the Easter Hare originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season Eastertide.

"Walking is a virtue, tourism is a deadly sin."
Bruce Chatwin, What Am I Doing Here?

After delivering my academic papers I spent idle time wandering through the old town, Ribeira district, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Admiring the beautiful blue and white tiles that cover many of the buildings, and the typography of local shop signs.
