Getting ready to depart Portugal

It has been a wonderful whirlwind time here in Portugal.  I have so many lovely cousins who are without exception, incredibly generous and kind.  Despite not having much of an ability to talk much in Portuguese, I do manage to understand some of what they are talking about.  Many talk fast and it can be difficult to understand, particularly since I know more individual words than expressions.  Regardless it has been outstanding.  From the North in Anadia to Sintra, the sights and smells (incredible smells - all good) have been fantastic.

Here are a few images from my travels in the past few days
