After a frantic sprint through the BCN airport and 2 Portuguese train rides (one air-conditioned and one sauna), we got to Portimão (in the coastal Algarve region of Portugal) in the sweltering heat of the afternoon.  Portimâo is crawling with tourists, but the ocean is still beautiful with red and ochre cliffs.  The weather is definitely more palatable than BCN, not as humid and a lot cooler at nights with a breeze coming in at night from the Atlantic.

Today and tomorrow is mostly about winding down and relaxing, but come Tuesday we may visit a grotto or two (sea cave) on a pirate ship.  Arrrrrrrr!

Boa nôite.

    Yesh, no food malaise or mishap this time around, thank God.   The Camper flips are cool, just have to break ’em in a bit.  Hey, there are a lot of white bohemianish skirts here in Portimão.  Do you have enough white skirts? ,)  This town is right up your alley.
