Postcards from Spain and Portugal: Street Performers

Trip MapOne of the delights of my recent trip through Spain and Portugal this August were the very talented street performers we came across. Posted mainly in strategic tourist spots, they came in all forms and varieties, some of whom really took my breath away while others surprised me. Here are a few of the ones that stood out among the many.
