A friend has asked me to inquire as to whether the harriers have a club here? We'll be having our friends as guests soon and the husband is an avid runner. Does anyone know about this group?

Hello everyone ! I am making plans in moving to Lisbon and therefor I need a job to support myself. I am a physiotherapist as a profession. I was really hoping that from here I can find some help in this, is it possible, where I should look, some useful contacts ? I speak fluently English, my Portuguese is not very good to be honest.  Any help, just something would make a big difference. Many thanks in advance.    Liina

We really wanted to share this fascinating interview for the BBC about the work of Sophie de Oliveira Barata. The video is 4 minutes long but well worth watching. You can find it on Lisbon Live at this link: Personalized Prosthetic Limbs Sophie has set up the Alternative Limb Project http://www.thealternativelimbproject.com/ in her London studio. From an art background, with a first class honours degree in Special Effects prosthetics for film and TV, Sophie worked as a sculptor for 8 years at one of the UK’s leading prosthetic providers, making realistic, bespoke prosthetics for amputees. her Alternative Limb Project designs and creates prosthetics to blend perfectly with the wearer’s body or become a work of art made uniquely to suit an individual. There is also this excellent interview in the Guardian from December 2013 to learn more: http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2013/dec/29/artificial-limbs-art-de-oliveira-barata-interview

I am part of a group who are running a charity 5km in Cascais in May.  We would like to 'push' a disabled member of our team but need a lightweight aluminium wheelchair.  Any chance anyone knows where I may borrow one of these.  Some of the sporting institutes want to charge a huge amount for the pleasure which rather defeats the object of the charitable run.  Anyone help?

Hello, I went to see an orthopedist at CUF Cascais (Dr. Carlos Amaral) who recommended hip replacement surgery to treat my osteoarthritic hip.  His diagnosis did not come as a surprise to me at all.  However, as a newcomer in the area who has never even set a foot into a Portuguese hospital, I would love to hear your thoughts about the whole experience, either with Dr. Amaral or another orthopedic surgeon. Thank you very much in advance!
