Is this the one with the train along the edge? I always wanted to take that trip!

Olá Armando!

E o barquinho vai, a tardinha cai... Obrigada pelo comentário gentil.



Hope you enjoyed your time there. This used to be the best of the type in the city. A lot of "by the kilo" places have opened. Many are out in the "suburbs" and the last one I went to looked "fancy" but the food was very disappointing. This one was always expensive but the food was excellent. Of course you have been in the south where this style is native. Seafood was traditional on the coast, though this photo is in a place you probably also saw and is tourist oriented. Inland Alagoas is more like this or this and both of those are more for the visitor or locals dining out on an occasion. Decades ago when all the family was alive noon tables could rival some of those. When I first went there were always several meat/fish/chicken dishes, usually two types of beans and several other dishes such as one finds at the salad bars in these places. In the evening it was just soup, great soup, made from noon's leftovers. Simpler now, but still very good.

Sintra is commuter rail or bus travel away, frequent and short

...will have an eye on that. Have read that the touritsts pass still is available. We'll be there some days so let's wait and see. Travel books beginns to fill the table here...


...was a nice pice of work to recognize that :)

One of my favorite cities and one of my favorite areas in that city. I've spent a few hours around that bridge just soaking the place up and then there were the morning glories in bloom all over the walls and even some roofs below. Thanks.

No, not at all a good thing. It happens a lot in D.C. as well with the circles and particularly the triangles. Those really confuse strangers and sometimes even us old hands. Wait at a light, get a green arrow, make your turn and "Yikes!"—three car lengths ahead is a red light for you and people about to cross. I've seen some near misses on pedestrians and my first fender bender, a scratch in my first new car, almost 50 years ago was me making that turn and thinking I was clear a time. If you look at the map here you can see traffic from the bottom (from the bridge and Eastport direction) intending to go to the Academy has to merge with circle traffic and do a lane shift to the middle lane just before the intersection with no traffic light and heavy pedestrian traffic. The next block has a light. The real problem comes when someone mistakenly in that left only lane tries to make that light and accelerates squeezing out people in the proper lane just as the pedestrian herd may be attempting a crossing. Yikes indeed!
