Wed 4 Nov - Faro R&R Day 1
A lazy morning yet again. I felt quite uninspired and was not exactly jumping out of bed to explore Faro as I woke up.
It is probably a sign that it is time to go home. I've seen and experienced enough for one trip. It would have been different if Good Mrs was here...
I did get up for breakfast served downstairs at 7am, which incidentally is quite extensive for being continental, but then I went back to my room and chilled a bit more.
By 9.30am I eventually moved my sorry backside and wandered out to explore Faro.
Outside Faro train station, tree hacking was in full swing. The pruners had already worked through a number of trees when I arrived. The workers were quite brutal in their chopping.
Adjacent to the park was the municipal library. This photo is taken from inside the park and looking at the side of the library.
- No lid on the waste basket
- The lid to the soap dispenser does not stay up
- Water drain is almost completely blocked
That's right. This particular chapel is made of human bones and decorated further with human skulls. As you do.
All those skulls and bones provided ample opportunity for strange photography. And I was there all by myself so nobody else to accommodate.
Along the way, I passed the building where the painters with the paint spotted van were working yesterday. The painters were gone now and this was the result from their efforts.
Along the pedestrianized areas.
The evening was spent watching football on TV in my hotel room and drinking vino tinto.
All in all, a pretty uneventful day.
Oh well, I'm off to Lisbon the morning after tomorrow and I will be home in 6 days. It is definitely time.
Post note: Here is my Portuguese crash course of essential words.
