A rough night for sleeping. Probably too many naps and jet lag. The first few days are rough and at times surreal. Went downstairs for breakfast and my friendly waiter engaged in more political discourse. Had a long walk along the grand Avenida de Liberdade. Booked a bus to Lagos on the Algarve. Lunch was agua con gas and some cod cakes in a beautiful park. A dog had a long pee on the bench beside me. Back to Flamingo for a glass of orange juice and a nap. For dinner found a secluded area near the Flamingo. Calde Verde and grilled sardines with roast potatoes and a glass of white wine for $3.00. The food in Portugal is very good. There were two stoners beside me completely spaced out. One dropped his dinner plate on the ground while his friend clumsily tried to clean him up. One strange restaurant!
