Friday: Karen and Glen left early this morning on a bus to Obidos. We found out about a chocolate festival from an Uber driver and they didn't want to miss this fun event. Marji and Gary's plane was arriving midmorning so we decided to take advantage of the time and tidy up. Around noon, the car service pulled up and our newest roomies emerged. The four of us joined forces to carry the suitcases up the many flights of stairs to our apartment.
After settling in, Mike, Marji, Gary, and I took off for Baixa and the start of our Lisbon tour. Lunch on the Commercial Plaza, gave us a chance to give the lay of the land. We then started our wander. First, Gary needed his first pastel de nata at the oldest pastry shop in Lisbon. Shots of cherry liqueur at the Ginjinha Bar. Buy some snacks at the charcuterie store. Funicular Gloria up to the park.
Uber home to reconnect w Glen & Karen and learn about their adventure.
