Photographer's Note

Today, at 00:59 local time, it's the June or Summer Solstice in Portugal. In the southern hemisphere it's the Winter Solestice.
As the days are long and there's plenty of sunshine in Portugal, it is the best time to use even more the solar oven or solar cooker. I guess there's no need to write about the economic and environmental advantages of this device. What wonders me it is why so few of these ovens are used.
The model of the picture was projected and manufactured in Portugal. It's maybe one of the most expensive, but even so in 2006 it costed less than today's two tanks of gasoline for a regular car.
Other view in workshop, baking a cake.
Celebro a chegada do Vero ao hemisfrio norte com este forno solar. No pas com mais horas de sol da Europa, espanta-me que em Portugal sejam to pouco usados estes fornos solares.
O modelo da foto foi totalmente concebido e fabricado em Portugal. talvez dos mais caros, mas mesmo assim o seu preo em 2006 foi menos do que agora encher dois depsitos de gasolina num carro. No vejo necessidade de falar das vantagens econmicas e ambientais deste aparelho.
No workshop est outra vista, cozendo um bolo.
