    ... ringing the bell beside the reception, the Dutch owner, Siboe, came to greet us and checked us in. We set up on a gravelled pitch offering some shade looking out on to a plantation of cork trees, while beyond is Siboe's small herd of reddish-brown cattle grazing. The Alentejo, a big fertile region, is the breadbasket of Portugal that makes half its wine and is the largest producer of cork in the world. Due to its turbulent past, many of its towns are on hilltops, just ...

After walking around for 1.5 hrs we ...

    ... cork trees. The tourist shops are full of it. They can make anything out of cork, none of which you'd actually want. There are cork iPad covers, cork shoes, cork handbags, even cork jackets. I imagine you can buy cork underpants too, if you so desire. You'd be a little uncomfortable, but at least you'd float in an emergency, or stop up a bottle of wine without a blink. Next move: hire a car at Lisbon airport and drive to Evora. This will be ...
