We get up reasonably on time. Pia did not sleep well at Hotel Dom Fernando in √Čvora.
When we open the curtains we see that it has rained in Evora, and the weather is cloudy and gloomy.
We have breakfast, it is less crowded than yesterday in the dining room.

Packing is fast, we are going to Lisbon today, and at a quarter past 10 we check out. The GPS knows the address where we need to go, and it would take a little more than an hour. We call Mr. Helio, but he does not answer the phone, so we send him a message that we are there between half past eleven and a quarter to twelve.
The ride is going well, it is raining regularly on the way, and at half past eleven we are in front of the apartment in Barreiro. Mr. Helio is also there. He shows us the apartment, which is nicer and bigger than we expected. There is a modern open kitchen with fridge and dishwasher, an open dining room, a sitting room, two bedrooms and a modern bathroom.
We also get a tour of the neighborhood so that we know where we can drink coffee and possibly have breakfast in the morning, and also that we know where the market is.

When Helio leaves, Tang and Arjan ring. We look at their apartment, which is closer to the ferry, and then we eat at a restaurant along the water. It is a large restaurant and it is busy, we have to wait fifteen minutes.
The wait seems worthwhile, the food is good, the people friendly.
It's probably the clubhouse of old sailors or something.

After dinner we walk along the beaches of the Tagus, which are quite large, and then to the house of Arjan's sister.
Arjan and Tang bring us back to the apartment, and we agree to go by ferry and train to Cascais tomorrow. We will walk to the ferry and when we are almost there we will warn Tang and Arjan.

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.

This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not. There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
