Meeting up with friends

Portugal is a great place to eat, drink and be merry. And at prices that are not expensive.

I enjoyed meeting up with Louis and Jorge, both of whom own apartments in Praia da Rocha, and was introduced to Aubrey who now handles checking in of our guests at the apartment and also handles the cleaning and change of linen on their departure.

Local cuisine is excellent, and Sangria has become our national drink. All very nice.

Manuel introduced me to the delicious cinnamon sprinkled bake at the nearby fishing village Alvor's Saturday morning market.

Sangria is our national drink
