Portugal, Day One

March 12, 2007
Many Salt+Light viewers are familiar with our on-air personalities, but behind the camera there is a host of hard working and creative individuals that make S+L tick.
One of those individuals is Marc Boudignon. His face may not be familiar, but he is one of S+L's dedicated and talented editors -- bringing you our book shows (both English and French), selected episodes of Catholic Focus, documentaries (including the award winning "Opus Dei: Decoding God's Work" and the highly anticipated "Turning the Tides: Dignity, Compassion and Euthanasia"), as well as other projects.
Mark, and his wife Nola, have traveled to Portugal for the week. It also seems he's exchanged his television editing skills for blog entry editing skills as he sends us this from Portugal:
As I write this, my wife and I are about to head off to dinner. Last night, I took in some traditional chicken pirri-pirri...tonight, who knows what?
Tomorrow we will be hitting the A2 highway to Fatima. There were plenty of signs to prepare us: a book in three languages outlining the messages of Our Lady to the three shepherds in the drawer of our hotel room in the Algarve, and a small, but beautiful ceramic mural of the scene of the apparition along the road to Portimao.
The people here are friendly, the atmosphere incredible and the weather ... better than Toronto! When the sun shines, it is shorts and t-shirt weather, but in the shade, a sweater is needed. My tan will have to wait.
We will keep Salt and Light in our prayers at the shrine, and when we return to the Algarve, I'll post another entry.
In Christ,
Marc and Nola
Thanks to both of you for thinking of us for keeping us in your prayers. We look forward to hearing from you!
