Although we loved Lisbon it is delightful to be in a small town. We are staying at the DP Hostel, which makes Gordon very happy because we are only paying 25€ for a tiny double room with ensuite. While we are talking about costs, our multi course lunch, including beer and dessert (the incomparable pastel de nata) was 17€ for both of us.
The off road portion of the camino was very rideable today. Most of the route followed the Tejo on a series of bike paths, farm lanes and single lane tracks. My measure of a great city is one that you can cycle in and out of all on bike paths! We only saw three Pilgrims today and two of them are at our hotel tonight.
