Not missing, just not in the photo. And a restaurant, and a playground too. All there, in A1 highway, going from Lisbon to Oporto. In both sides of the highway. Thanks to GALP, our little portuguese ExxonMobil.

I forgot, for now the charges are free, 24 hours a day, 265 days an year. Maybe next summer we will have to pay. The last 2 and an half years i ride for free when i'm going everywhere.

No, on the highway, i like to drive very early to avoid traffic and drive at low speed. That's why it seems empty. But my wife and my son are there, besides and in the car. Two rainbows. Never feeling lonely, if there isn't my family, i enjoy every Watt it takes and every Watt it spends. Canion is my favorite TV show, always watching. In Portugal, something like 220 Leafs and 40 i-MiEV/C0/Ion in the end of 2012, but now VE are more then 400, i think. Leafs are so dominant here that i felt like the ugly duck all the time, and for 2 and a half years i thought that i should take care of it like it was a Leaf (mother duck teach me that way). Now i see that all my "brothers" have batteries with 18% degradation, and me, the oldest, not even 10%, i think. Very proud to be i-MiEV, so. It's becaming the most beautiful swan in the area.

UAU! We have 30 of the triplets. That's 1 I-miev per 67.000 inhabitants. In Portugal only 1 swan per 265.000 inhabitants. But only 3 Leafs are registered here. All imported from abroad. Nissan is not interested to sell Leaf in Slovenia.

I used a DC fast charger in NYC (thanks to one of the few electric taxi drivers and good fortune) and it was great! I really want to see more DC fast chargers. We almost have enough for a trip from NYC to DC.
