Following her visit to Greece a few weeks ago, German Chancellor Angela Merkel traveled to Portugal on Monday, a country also ravaged by the European debt crisis. The chancellor had sought to bring a bit of hope to the struggling nation. She exchanged pleasantries with the country's prime minsiter, Pedro Passos Coelho, but was also the subject of street protests. Here, a man walks in front of graffiti portraying Merkel as a puppetmaster over Prime Minister Passos Coelho (left) and Foreign Minister Paulo Portas (right).
