Italy & TransAtlantic Cruise 2012
Funchal, Madeira

Friday, November 16

The ship's doctor has treated Marg with an inhaler and pills, but is concerned about pneumonia, so suggests that we visit a pulmonary specialist in Funchal. They arrange the whole thing (except for the payment!). We are to be ready for a call at 8 AM, but when it comes we learn that we will visit the Funchal doctor this afternoon. So we decide to stroll downtown - not all that far.

Funchal climbs the hills behind the shore. Guess the tide was out when I took the second shot.
The yellow cabs are owner owned. Mostly Mercedes diesel and last for decades.
Hard to tell which are new and which are twenty plus years old.

Funchal street scenes. The small tiles used for paving must take much labour to install.
More yellow cabs in front of city hall. Not just the tourists use them.

Walking back to the ship we saw a statue of a worker, and our ship across from the ocean-side park.

In the afternoon we were driven to the pulmonary specialist,
who said there was no sign of pneumonia.
Streets narrow and parking not easy, but no problem!
