We had much fun “tobogganing” Madeira style. You sit on a wicker bench and 2 men push and steer you down the hill. It was much fun :)

Madeira’s five-century-old capital is said to have been named ‘Funchal’ is located in an absolutely unique area. The “amphitheatre” of the city begins at the harbour and raises almost 1200 mt high on gentle slopes. Kisiwa hiki ni kizuri naweza jiona mimi kuishi hapa. Hali yake ya hewa ni mchanganyiko kutoka joto mpaka baridi, kwa mfano hapa tulipo ni juu sana ambapo hali ya hewa ukilinganisha na Funchal mjini ni tofauti kabisa huku kuna ukungu pamoja na kiubaridi.

Kwa kweli Madeira Islands ni pazuri sana ni sehemu yenye mandhari nzuri na yenye utofauti mkubwa ndani ya kisiwa kimoja. Mfano ukiwa eneo la port ambapo hali ya hewa ni tropical na ukipanda juu kidogo hali ya hewa inabadilika na ukifika juu kabisa kwenye hills hali yake ya hewa ni baridi, mawingu na ukungu na jua pia. Inafurahish sababu utakiwi kusafiri sana kupata haya mabadiliko ni dk chache tu unajikuta kwenye hali ya hewa tofauti. It’s beautiful! I love it!  :)

Funchal city begins at the harbour and raises almost 1200 mt high on the gentle slopes. Funchal’s position provides a natural shelter and was what attracted the first settlers. The best harbour and the best climate combined with an excellent geographical.

I love this pic very much as you can see all of us in the taxi including taxi driver and view of the Funchal, Madeira
