Sunday October 25

Another big day in Lisbon. We went out to Sintra. A lovely town where the wealthy obvious;y live. Think Unionville or Hudson. Really pretty. Curvy cobblestone streets, great street art and beautiful architecture. It is a good hike up to the castle and the palace at Pena. 6 kilometres to be exact. Uphill. It is a lovely palace . Not ostentacious...think of your grandmother]s house. Te walk up took us about an hour and a half, and then we found the path down..about half an hour. We had lunch in Sintra. You see tourists or rich Portuguese.

Back at te hostel. We are going to eat their dinner tonight. Now the h is not working. Oh well beggars can[t be choosers. Still having problem;s with the apostrophe. Tonight is grilled chicken and sangria for 6 euros. Sounds good to me. I will report back. Off to te Algrve on te bus at 9 tomorrow morning.
