Travel: Evora, day 2.

Today we explored Evora more in depth.  We began the day with a City walk including a talk at the local university, and a visit to the local cathedral and the small Franciscan Church of San Francisco, also know as the chapel of bones.

Hundreds and hundreds of human bones. Creepy!

We later spent midday at a local Portuguese Cooking school where we prepared lunch for each other, half preparing appetizers and first courses and the others preparing the main course and desert. The wine flowed, so did the laughter, it was a delightful meal.

Both of us with sharp knives!

  1. Another great day! I am ready to revisit Portugal, this time with OAT. We traveled by car there about 15 years ago. Your tour looks excellent.
