The Kitchen Inside the Convent

Sintra, Portugal

Notice the cork on the window and the ceiling.
Cork was plentiful around here and it was how they insulated the convent.

The rough and irregular cork texture makes a three dimensional art statement in the rustic abode. V

Working in this is serving penance. Cork..Old ice boxes had cork between the wooden shell for insulation, I recall.
