Neighborhood scene / Cena de bairro

With their small houses and shops, and their neighbours who know each other for decades, these little districts that resist to time and fast-growing urban expansion are like small villages, even when located within larger cities.
Com as suas pequenas casas e lojas, e os seus vizinhos que se conhecem há décadas, estes pequenos bairros que resistem ao tempo e à voragem urbanística são como pequenas aldeias, mesmo quando se situam dentro de cidades maiores.

The old lady seems to be suspicious of the old fellows chatting in the store. Probably for good reason!
Beautiful work.

Maybe she thinks they're telling gossip about her... And maybe she's right!!:-)
