We spent Monday at the beach with the kids while Eric went to his conference.
Only person who swam was Catie.
Everyone else had a dip but quickly retreated.
Walked along the beach and explored the tidal pools too.
|Fado, painting by José Malhoa (1910)|
Tuesday went to the Fado museum.
A fado is sung by one person called a fadista and is normally accompanied by a Portuguese guitar and a classical guitar.
Not a huge hit with the kids.
Yesterday explored St George's castle and took the famous trolley ride up the narrow streets of Lisbon.
The heat is almost unbearable.
Now I understand the need for siesta, so everyone can retreat from the sun between 1-4 p.m.
Hebe said it best yesterday when she cried out in the mid-day heat, "Sun go away".
