The apartment in Barreiro is quite noisy, probably because almost everyone in the building has tiles on the floor.
But the bed is alright. And the bathroom too.

When we showered we walk through the park across the street. It is a nice park, with play equipment, ponds with ducks and other water birds and turtles, chickens and a small restaurant.
We drink coffee in the restaurant and we order two toasted sandwiches, small ones, for breakfast. The coffee tastes good, and Tang and Arjan join in, they don't want to go to Cascais today. When the toasted sandwiches turn out to be very large, and yet these are the small ones that we have ordered. They taste good.
Tang and Arjan take our dirty laundry, and we walk to the local Lidl where we buy water and yogurt. A little later we go by car to Tang and Arjan's apartment to pick up the clean laundry. Of course we can no longer find the apartment, but after some phone calls and help from Google we get there. We go to a supermarket to buy some groceries because we are going to eat at Tang and Arjan's, and then we drive back to our apartment with the clean laundry.
We walk back to Tang and Arjan, a good half-hour walk, where we eat. We also walk back; a good half hour.

Barreiro seems primarily a sleeping city. There is little to see and the buildings mostly consist of apartment buildings of three or four floors.

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.
