Today we take the bus to Belém because it is a little far to walk.
First it is time for lunch, especially Portuguese roasted chicken. It is the best. A finds us a great place nearby to try.
After lunch of course it is time for dessert. We head over to Pastéis de Belém. We try their wonderful custard desserts.
We both ended up buying six, which probably wasn’t the best idea. But I finished them over the next couple days: ate them in the morning and as a train snack.
After our dessert we walked over to the Jerónimos Monastery.
We soon discover we are where Vasco da Gama the explorer is buried.
We have Fado reservations for the evening so we return to closer to the main part of town. While we wait we watch tourist boats in the harbor. I ended up taking this boat about a week later when I was traveling alone again. It was quite fun.
Now it is off to Fado. I’ll dedicate a post to this later. Bye!
