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
