yeah just got back from portugal after a week .
I am really suntanned. had a great time in Albufeira in the Algarve.
I recommend Portugal to anyone
People are really really friendly and luckily they all speak good english.
My portuguese extends to 'Ola' and 'Boa Tarde'
Went on an excursion to Gibraltar and then cape st vincent the day after Gib was a 19 hour coach journey - jesus wept
It was around 30 degrees that day with nice breeze.
Didn't like all the english bars with football on tv in Albufiera - serving fish and chips/english food
kind of like Blackpool in the sun, but did try some local dishes after a bit of exploring.
yeah in the uk if you order a measure of vodka you get a paltry amount but in Europe you get a
tall glass half filled with vod.
yeah don't much feel like working now
