Now & Then (end) - Lisbon amazing thrift stores!

Then:
Here are a few of the remaining pictures of Luanda... I didn't take more pictures because after all there was a lot more to do, a lot to absorb. It ended up being shocking endurance experience in every way - from not wanting to go to being aware of another realities, being in touch with my essence and feeling like the child I was when used to frequent those amazingly amazing beaches (no wonder why I couldn't stand Lisbon beaches.).
Being Fashion Masturbation a FASHION blog, and not a ??????cal one, I shall not write about a lot of things I would love to scream and shout on this last Luanda post of mine...So skipping the development and rushing to the conclusion:
#1 The mental castration no longer scares me.
#2 I loved it
#3 Miss it
#4 Can't wait till next time

With sand on my feet, a very very heavy heart and this song hitting my Ipod I left behind a part of me that I surely will regain soon: Angola.

...The result was a pleasant night at Lux with a special participation of the " Scarf  Guru" - Starring Ricardo and his "hundred" different ways of wearing a scarf.

AMAZING THRIFT STORES
I was convinced that Lisbon couldn't give me much more when it comes to vintage purchases but turns out I was awfully wrong and there are still a few "worlds"left to explore!
"The harder to get the better to have" - this phrase kept me going even when I felt like I was doing the vintage version of the maritime route to India... Well I don't know  how Vasco da Gama felt when he got to India, but ba-ba-Boom! Suddenly I was walking inside of some of the least appreciated but great  thrift stores never once sniffed by the humankind...which location I absolutely can't reveal, as I promised to my guide.
Location : Somewhere over the rainbow
Real location ( I might get killed for it) : Cascais
More detailed location : No can do.
