Complaining about the mosquitos today, I was reminded that malaria mosquitos were only eradicated in Portugal (and other parts of Europe) in 1969.

In a book I have: "The selected traveller in Portugal", written in 1963 (by Anne Bridge and Susan Lowndes) they have this to say about Setúbal (where I live):

"Rice is largely grown up the Sado valley; the paddy-fields make some of the towns and villages unsafe during the summer, owing to the prevalence of the malaria mosquito, though much research (in part financed by the Rockfeller Trust) has been conducted on how to overcome this danger."

Does anyone recognise this Setúbal?
