“Travels to a Different Time: : 13July1978: Faro and Monte Gordo, Portugal: Glorious View of the BP Station!

Up at 8:30 to a cold day and off to the market for breakfast eaten in the room with a glorious view of the BP gas station. Boarded the bus for Monte Gordo and the bus driver zipped along at a good clip along the treacherous roads. The room I found was $11.50 a night. Looking forward to a hot shower but the municipality had closed the water down until 22:00 so off to dinner in this small town without a main drag only a few stores and restaurants here and there. Sardines and Vinho Verde for dinner. Took a stroll around including a walk through of some obnoxious circus. Strangely there is a big casino here.
