The hotel is located right on the beach and has a nice pool...this is the only draw really. Other than that, it has a really weird old folks home kind of feeling. One commons room literally is a room of about 30 couches, coffee tables and board games. Odd. But, it is walking distance to town...think cheap casino town. The room was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the water. They let us take our bikes (we are bike touring) into the room...this is always a nice plus for us. The breakfast buffet is included and actually had a descent selection of fresh fruits, pastries and hot foods if you choose...good coffee too! Honestly it is probably the best option in this odd town.

So again, Happy New Year, Adventure ...

The Moors were sent back to Spain at some point and then I guess it ...
Today is flea market day in Momte Gordo, but not a great turn out. I saw a few things I liked, but couldn't carry them with me in my small pack. The town is the Portugese Fort Lauderdale. The most interesting thing was seeing the fisherman on the beach. ...
Merry Christmas everyone! Just one photo today, but a nice one I think. I made several origami cranes and gave them to the shop owners of the stores I frequent. Then I made some extras and put them in my pocket and walked around the village. I came across these two women sitting in ...
... my note ''she is like mi Madre'' he’d said. Manuella read Jose’s note and completely underwhelmed, showed it her son, ‘who is ee’ he asked looking at us suspiciously. Neither of them spoke very good English and unable to enlighten them we ordered the lamb. The lamb was flavourless; the vegetables over salted and the potatoes miserly, and Richard swore he’d heard a microwave pinging in the kitchen. The restaurant was empty too apart ...
