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.

... nighttime activities consisted of comparing Portuguese lagers and watching penalties, you can tell the Dutch have been practicing, they even have a special keeper only for shoot-outs. Hats off to Costa Rica in any case. Today we might quickly check out Faro, but our next stop is now inland. Evora, another unesco heritage place, awaits us in the ...
... and we still do a fair bit of perspiring.
When we finally set foot outside we noticed a big drop in temperature from the previous days. "Only" 31C (88F). We were relieved.
We stopped at market for some hummus and water for lunch. At the station, our bus driver was already loading luggage (3:45) and we managed to get front seats behind driver.
