Where I stayed
A very chic apartment in Campo d´Ourique
We were in great spirits until we waited in the LONG line up at Customs A.k.A for those SAPS, without an EU passport!! MB being the resourceful and impatient one decided to Jump the queue (sP?) because she used the ªtraveling with child´card... The conscience only nagged for 2mins but once they were being admitted into the country trouble -free her conscience was clear again. Btw, BB did as Tia Maria asked him, to stay absolutely quiet when at CUSTOMS... in fact he just nodded his head and was absolutely silent, a rare moment in his life. LOL!
Awaiting, was the beautiful Filipa and her husband Rui who wisked us away to their family´s house on the southside of Lisbon - Cruz de Pau
MB was delighted to visit with family, who she hasn´t seen in 6 years. We celebrated Prima Aldinhas 70th birthday and you have to see this woman, she looks stunning. Benicio didn´t believe me when I told her she was a grandmother. For the record, at this family dinner, MB was mistaken for a 15year old at one point, but because she didn´t hear this firsthand, she can not say if this is for sure, or a rumor?
Our first day was perfect, a wonderful way to start out stay in Lisbon. BB is in love with the city already! He thinks it is AWESOME!!
