... The place had a mariner’s compass, some cool cannons, and lots of lookouts that used to be for spotting people trying to sneak into the country on the water.

Another bus ride and we ended up in Lagos. Not the former capital of *****ia, but a city in Portugal. It is a community where a lot of Europeans go to retire and where a lot of Europeans go for tourist activities.
