At Lisboa

AdminThis city has to be seen! The wealth and opulence of the Portiguise Empire can still be seen here. The first action was to go by tram from one end of the city to the other. All windows open, up hill, down hill it was real fun! Next day we visited the huge monument of Infante Henry and the portuguise discoverer at the Rio Tejo, than the tower of Belem and the Naval museum. Next programm: the Expo exhibition, it took us already a half day to visit the oceaneum. If  there was no special programm we did sightseeing with our bicycles.
At the 3rd day the TO yacht LA BOHEME with Udo and Heidi came in. In the evening we all sit together and exchanged our stories of the Portuguese coast, at the end we all agreed: a lot of wind, a lot of wind, a lot of wind.
According to our nautical pilotbooks the best time to sail from Lisboa to Madeira is the month of August, so I set the sailing for the 22nd of August. The crew wanted to stay some more days at Lisboa, but I made them understand that we have to leave.
