Woken up at 06:00 by call from front desk so sprung into action to board 07:00 bus to Lagos in front of Hotel Rex. It was an hour late or perhaps we were given the wrong time. Not the type of bus I was expecting as we had headphones and they served us coffee. It was a 5-hour trip and it kept getting drier as we approached the Algarve. We passed by many poor looking villages. The main activity is agriculture. We ended up in Lagos a small fishing village. The room in a pension was $7.50. Lunch was beef, beans and potatoes in a tomato sauce. Took a long walk after along the coast and there were many small beaches in coves surrounded by high rocky formations. A bit touristy but nothing like Greece or Yugoslavia. Stopped for an orange drink called Sumol. Out at 21:00 to a small restaurant for grilled sardines and a salad. The sardines are so delicious here. The salad was good aside from the green caterpillar in it. Some people watching at the main square. Had a coffee and pastry and home to bed.
