We go for lunch with Tang and Arjan, so we are not leaving this morning, but want to take a look at the local market.
But then Tang sends a message, it will not be lunch, but dinner at 7 o'clock. And not in the restaurant we were going to, but somewhere else.

Pia wanted to have her hair dyed for a few days, and now we have time to do that.
After a cup of coffee in the park we look for a hairdresser, and a bit past Continente supermarket we find one that has time. It takes some effort to explain what the intention is, but it works. An hour later, Pia's hair is dyed, the result is good, and we walk back.

Along the way we buy two kilos of stockfish and we eat two salads with a lot of cheese at Coffeetaria in the park. The salads taste very good and are plentiful.

We don't do much in the afternoon. Pia sleeps a bit and Tom makes his travel stories suitable for publication.

At half past five we walk to the apartment of Tang and Arjan and from there we go with Arjan's car to his sister's house.
Helio, the landlord of our apartment is also there.
We eat in a restaurant along the water, Casa de Hugo. This does not look nice, it looks like a demolition building from the outside, but there is a nice terrace and inside it looks very neat.
Of course we eat fish because this is a fish restaurant. The fish is in a display case, and it looks very fresh. The fish is prepared on the grill and tastes very good.
We expect it to be expensive, but that is not so bad, 15 Eur per person for both food and drinks.

After dinner it is saying goodbye to everyone, because we are leaving tomorrow from Barreiro to Porto, and Tang and Arjan are going back to the Netherlands.

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.
