... t go to. We stopped at a restaurant on the Targus River waterfront , the Portugalia and had a light dinner. It was much the same as we had the first night. Meat cooked in olive oil with pickled carrots and cauliflower . It is actually very delicious. The dish was called Pica Pau.

And I am out roaming, I end up in praça da Figueira, which I have been told is better avoided at night, but, well, I am already there. The good thing is that it's close to Rossio. The train station is beautiful in the night. I stop to watch it and then I climb another steep hill and reach Largo do Carmo. I am really glad I ...
