We got into mass a bit late because there was a long line to get in. Once we got near the entrance we saw a sign for a much shorter line- actually so short there was no one in it. It was the mass line. So we cut out of the tourist line and into the line/door for the mass.
Mass was in French and Latin. I could keep up between the two.
So after mass we headed in a quick walking manner back to the subway and to the airport. We got back in the nick of time with just a bit of time to pick up some food for the flight. I got a salad(all produce is organic in France) and it was yum.
We made it to Lisbon and had a long wait for our bags. While waiting I received my first Portuguese language lesson. Sagres. For Beer. Pronounced Sah-grsh.
We stowed our bags in the back of our little stick shift rental- a cream clubman Mini Cooper.
Our hotel was swanky and entirely free- thanks Marriott frequent stay points! Fontecruz Lisbon is affiliated with Marriott. It had cinnamon orange water at the front desk and a few steps further into the lobby is a 2 story wall with projected films on it. Random film. Sometimes weird film. Very chic. Very random and weird. The hotel is on Avenida de Liberdade- an upper crust commerce and fashion street. Chris and I fit in extremely well.
Naps- immediately in the room. I rolled out my yoga mat and stretched out first so maybe "naps immediately" isn't exactly accurate.
After naps we changed and went to dinner. We chose a Brazilian steak house off Avenida de Liberdade.
We walked further and had drinks in a little plaza- more like a part of a sidestreet that widened out a bit. We returned to the hotel for bedtime which wasn't at all adversely effected by our giant late afternoon nap.
