Essay I wrote about our trip!

We took a wonderful trip to Portugal during the summer of '96! We spent two days in Lisbon, followed by a leisurely trip south, to Santiago do Cacem, the Algarve, and then back north to Alvito and Evora. Finally we returned to Lisbon, and then home. Even though I took the wrong film (ASA 200 or 100 would have been best) I still got some nice pictures.

In planning our vacation, I found a super Web source, Portugal for Travellers, maintained by Jose Loureiro. Unfortunately I can no longer find this site, but you may find "Pousadas of Portugal" useful.
