The orange rooftops that cover the view from the bell tower serve as the ideal landscape for introducing heroin. Within minutes of arriving into the Baixa area, several offers were made to purchase drugs. Ok, I replied. But I only need 1 gram of each substance for my art. When mixing the tanned substance with water in my studio, I noticed the smell of cinnamon spice which later was confirmed by a local as being fake. The 15 Euro spent on one gram on the street could have purchased several hundred grams of ground cinnamon from the store. I was scammed.
