I've arrived in sunny Portugal! The weather seems to have just turned, and it is nice and pleasant during the day and just a tad cool at night.
There's even surf here, though it was so big out where I rented a board at Guincho yesterday I very nearly got sucked out to sea by a rip current! I should have known better when all of the locals said it was too big to go out. Ah well, live and learn.
Now I just need to find some good cafes to write in and I'll be all set! Tomorrow it's off to check out Lisbon, 30 minutes away by train.
