The guy during the day, Lucas and his sidekick Honey, were both really awesome. Everyone else was eh. The place had really nice blankets for a hostel. The hostel itself sucked to find and walk to, it's at the top of a hill (maybe common for Lisbon? But it still sucked.) If you go, try to go when your luggage is light for steep hills. Also, the coffee tastes like corn.

Steve wanted to stay another day in Porto and I should have listened. Two days was not enough time for him to rest and get acclimated. And, I was really tired.

my 24 Euro intercity train ticket. My observations about the Portuguese
countryside and towns from the train route is that much of it is a little like

The roads were built in the time before cars so no reason to make them wider. It was a cool little neighbourhood because it was right in the city but very quiet because of no cars. We kept walking for a couple of hours, getting our bearings and taking in the culture of ...
... nooks and crannies and secret hideaways, underground tunnels, fountains, towers and a beautiful chapel.
It also has an Initiatic Well, which is a subterranean Tower which is 27 meters deep and has within its walls a spiral staircase to the bottom. It also has a tunnel access from further down in the garden. This was really interesting as the water is held at the bottom of the well in bath sized compartments.

Today is our last day in Lisbon and Portugal as we head off to the UK tomorrow. We planned on this being a wash up day to view things we had not had time to visit. It started with a walk to find some building art we had seen from one of the buses. Interesting art with one of the pictures being a statement about the oil companies sucking the earth dry of oil. ...
