Sunday in Coimbra. We did the kind of things that most people do on holiday – slept in, had a late breakfast, walked around and explored a bit, sat in a cafe eating cakes and drinking our preferred caffeinated beverage (me – coffee, Greg – Coke), went to a shopping centre, had an afternoon nap, had dinner at an Italian cafe by the river.
Side note: we wanted to buy a small tube of sunscreen when we were at the shopping centre. We had looked at the small supermarkets in the towns and villages we walked through, but hadn’t been able to find any. And no wonder – the cheapest, smallest tube or bottle we could find was 13 euros! Almost $20 for a 100ml tube. It’s very surprising, because a lot of Portuguese people are quite fair, but I guess there isn’t the problem of skin cancers here that there is in Australia.
