Another travel day--but this one went off without a hitch. Again the key to the success of the day depended on José the taxi driver. Sure enough he showed up on time, got us to the bus station, and gave us several bits of advice. What a great guy.
When we got on the bus the people behind us greeted us (in English). We had spoken with them briefly in Seville and it turns out that they were also on the cruise ship. They had several suggestions for us for Italy and also for our visit to Seville. But they talked the whole way so we didn't get to see much of the scenery. However their information was valuable and we will see the sights on the way back next week.
So we are in Portugal for a week using up one of our timeshare weeks in the resort town of Albufeira. The resort is beautiful with a huge pool, a waterslide, and located on the beach. A great place to relax--like we need to relax!! Ha! This is such a tough life.
Just a note--we have been able to make a few phone calls via Skype. What an amazing thing to be able to call to the other side of the world for free. Another reason to think it is a small world after all.
