Lisbon. October, 2009

Oh, those Portuguese do love their salt cod. Just look at this display in a department store food section. Throughout Lisbon (and just about every other Mediterranean country we’ve visited) there are stores that sell nothing but this dried and salted fish. Why, even back home in the US of A, salt cod can be found just about anywhere large groups of Mediterranean immigrants have settled. Including Gloucester, MA, and Boston and its environs where I see it all the time. I’ve really tried to like it. Can’t.
