Have recently returned from a great visit to see pedrodinis in his natural environment, Lagos, Portugal.
Gotta say that I loved every minute of it ( apart from the ones where I was spewing green liquid onto Portugese soil.. ) never mind “don’t drink the water..” try “don’t drink the jagermeister”!! 🙁
Got to meet some of his family; two sisters and a niece, all of whom were great and made me feel really welcome, put me up in their already crowded home and fed me all manner of curiosities. Octupus and grass soup 🙂
Was good to try lots of new foods and just simply be somewhere where people were relatively relaxed and taste their pace of life.
I should leave Croydon tomorrow and never look back.
Although it was winter – less than a week away from christmas, it was still warm enough like a reasonable british summer’s day. Returing without a tan, stuffed with so many fish dishes I can’t describe, I stepped off the plane at Gatwick, not only with visible breath in the air, but also sand in my socks and a smile.
