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.
... had a marrow soup. We both chose the suckling pig for our main. The meat had been pulled from the pig, covered with the crisped skin then compressed, reheated then cut into 10 cm squares. These food dishes represent the best of local food. We accompanied the meal with wine; Helen having a lovely verdehlo and I had a temperanillo - Hablo no silencio (the sound of silence). It was a truly memorable day. ...
... in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, which does trigger strong emotions.
Igreja de São João Did Not Disappoint!
We stopped at restaurant next to the Palais for a lunch buffet where the salad bar greens and beans pulled me in.
We were intrigued by a sign in front of the adjacent church claiming to be the most beautiful in Portugal.
The only reason I was eager to see Igreja de São João ...
... cemetery where a few officers from the Peninsular War are buried. There are some recent commemorative Plaques. It was beautifully kept - a lovely contemplative garden
As usual I'll let the photo's tell the ...
... car park.
Luckily just 300m back down the road we had seen signs for what looked like a Municipal campsite.
We decided to walk back down the road and have a look. It looked very basic, but there was one British MH there, so we stopped to talk to them. The site cost 14e per night inc. electricity, so we decided to give it a go. Elvas is a World heritage Sight that we particularly wanted to see
