A poke up the nose hurt less than the $300 it cost us. Covid PCR test.
Then a pleasant evening seated at a bar in Bento square watching tourists as we sipped white wine and a sangria.
We were treated to a very large demonstration—dressed in black, loud, drummers, noisy, about 30 police in front,a group of about 200, with another 30 police behind and two riot equipped police vans. The cause – Portuguese football.
Then our bill – a true tourist trap. I had a glass of white house wine because all the bars here serve ‘super bock’ beer. Heather had a sangria. Total cost €3 or about $4.50 Cdn., including great personal service and occupying an outdoor table for an hour. Tipping in Portugal is limited.
