We walked past the hotel initially, as it doesn't have a big sign out of the front. The staff at the service desk were very friendly and helpful. I did get a big shock when I saw my single room at first, as it was extremely basic. There was a small single bed, very narrow room, but an enormous bathroom. The shower was on the floor level, which meant that water escaped under the shower curtain and went all over the tiles on the floor. However, I managed to cope with that. The room was clean and I didn't spend much time in there anyway. It would have been good to have had wifi in the bedrooms, but there are areas downstairs where you can acess it. The hotel is in a great location, with dozens of restaurants just down the street. It is also within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions by the seaport. It is also close to trams, buses and trains. The price was low and did include a basic breakfast of bread, rolls, butter, jams and tea or coffee. It cost me less than 200 euros for 4 nights' accommodation, which is pretty good value.

We awoke not too early- actually a little later than planned but I HAVE to go on a run- or at least I talked Daniel into do a discovery run- no plan, no map, just our feet leading the way. We have until 1 when Ludi gets home from class and she will take us out on a weekend adventure at the beach.
I am happy that Daniel will do this with me. I know this makes him uncomfortable. Daniel is a man of habit, ...

Today we went to Belem. There are a lot of old things to see in this section of Lisbon. Belem is at the mouth of the River Targus, where 500 years ago sailors set sail on 'voyages of discovery.'
First we visited the ‘Mosterio dos Jeronimos.’ This monastery was commissioned by Manuel I in 1501. It is said it was funded by ‘pepper money,’ a tax on spices, precious stones, and ...
... the Portuguese started tiling in in the 16th century. By the 18th century, no other European country was producing as many tiles, for such a variety of purposes and in so many designs. the blue and white tiles of the Baroque era are considered by many to be the finest of quality.
Just walking around the city you see so many houses that are tiled that you can not pass by with out stopping and admiring the designs.
We were supposed to have a guided tour of Lisbon, but there was no guide. The driver took the scenic route to Lisbon and stopped along the way to let us take photos. There was no planned itinerary, so he took us to a local restaurant in Lisbon that he frequented. The food was good and not ...
... is as much about taking as it is about giving. I hope to learn from my fellow volunteers who are all incredibly selfless people. I have a connection with volunteers. They also believe in the same philosophy I do. Anyone can give money but to give up your time is real help. It is help from the heart. There is nothing wrong with giving money but I feel that it is an easy way out. If you genuinely want to make a difference, give up your time. The ...
