1449. Second Suburb Hike (Por 043)
Linda a Velha, January 7, 2013, Day 181
3 hrs, 3.0 kms
I was planning on continuing on to Spain last night, but the bus was full, so it looks like I've got another day to add on to my Lisbon Superhike.

You've let the jet stream slip south, leaving Blighty with cold weather and us poor ...
... and really great to get to spend time with them other than in the house! Afterwards, they took us to El Savor (a salsa bar). Probably one of the coolest things ever. No tourists, just locals.
