Day 5

 

Well one more morning has come and gone and we slept through it. Apparently no matter what time you go to bed here you wake up after noon. We decided to skip breakfast because well it was already 2 pm and we headed out the door.

 

Our first stop was in the city to exchange more money; and of course in two days the rate has changed and we get less money. We then headed to a cafe called Athanas. Apparently it has been there for like 100 years and I could tell why! After stuffing our faces we headed to the country side. Wow the views were absolutely amazing. I love how all the walls and roads are still all made from stone. We visited a few little towns and the beach. We then headed up to the top of this mountain called Serra do Cume to get an amazing view of  most of the island.  Out next stop was Praia da Vitoria, it’s the only other City on the island other than Angra de Horismo which is where my grandparents live. We did some tourist shopping and walked around a bit. One thing we noticed is that being on this island you think a lot about food. So of course it was time to eat. So we headed to place called Boston Pizza; no joke it was the closest thing to American food on the island. I have never had pizza in Boston but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it doesn’t taste like DiGiorno from the freezer isle because this stuff did. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t terrible, but definitely not the caliber of food I’m used to here on the island.

 

We took the trek home and packed for Lisbon tomorrow. We have to get up early tomorrow or we will miss our flight and that won’t be good. We got home and some random person had left us a home made desert at the door; everyone else was excited and all I could think of is who is going to be the guinea pig to see if anyone dies? Needless to say I didn’t eat any. We were home early but getting to bed early was another story we still didn’t fall asleep until 3am... it’s going to be a rough morning.
