Tom slept well in Barreiro, Pia less.

Today promises to be a quiet day, we just want to do some shopping.
After showering we have breakfast in the apartment, bread with cheese and sausage and yogurt.
Then, it is already eleven o'clock, we are going to drink a cup of coffee in the park. It is a lot quieter now than on weekends, and now there are mainly children. The coffee tastes excellent.

By car we go to the Continente shopping center.
Pia walks into a clothing store and sees nice clothes, but first we go shopping for food and drinks. After an hour we walk out of the supermarket with more than 20 liters of wine, a little cheese, a little sausage and some other things. The food and drinks must all be taken to the Netherlands.
Back in our apartment we eat the vegetables we bought yesterday, it doesn't taste bad, it tastes a bit like kale with bacon.

Pia has agreed something with Tang and we walk to their apartment. We find them in a café where they are eating sweets.
Pia and Tang are going to pick some kind of beans, Arjan and Tom are going to their apartment.
Then we go to see the apartment of Arjan's sister, it looks nice, but there is still a lot of work to be done on the building. The part of Barreiro where we are now consists of many old low houses, some renovated, but unfortunately there is also a lot of decline.
Together we drink something in a cafe along the boulevard, we are inside because there is a cold wind.
At 10 o'clock Tang, Arjan and us are going to look for a place to eat. We end up in Parque Catarina Eufémia, where we eat in a shop that looks like a butcher shop, and where there are also many tables for eating. It is very busy and the food tastes really good.
Arjan brings us back to our apartment by car.

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.
