... dined at a "fado" restaurant. Fado is the native music of Portugal. It was a very enjoyable experience. There was zero table turnover at the restaurant meaning all guests stayed the entirety of the show which lasted 3-4 hours.

They make these typical sweet pastries called "pashtel de nata de Belem." Tastes like mix between French toast and beaver tails. We finally got back to the house to get ready to go out.
