Our last day in Portugal was spending time with the Fergusons and the Morenos having a lunch of the Brazilian national dish - the feijoada, just google it. It was really good bonding time for our families. It was jump at like the christening feast - long table with plenty of food and wine.
Our time in Portugal is coming to an end and we will miss Maria's family.
