Cable car to Monte palace tropical garden.

The weather was bright and sunny and we took the cable car from Funchal to Monte. The views from the cable car were interesting as we were passing over the houses in the valley and up the mountain side. When we got out we went to see the exhibition of modern African sculpture, then saw a beautiful mineral collection, spending some time admiring the crystal collection and the natural way they had been exhibited.

Next we went into Monte Palace Tropical Garden and walked down and up the huge garden which used Japanese and Chinese artifacts in its construction, as well as tropical plants. Once we

left the garden we had a drink before descending in the cable car and returning to our apartment.
