Madeira 3: Funchal

Funchal, Madeira’s capital, was still in Christmas mood, with beautiful light displays brightening up the city at night. The night we visited, there was a concert in the park, where traditional songs for the time of Epiphany were sung. People used to go from door to door to sing these songs in honor of the three magi from the Christmas story. What a blessing to experience this!
