A highlight at any camping place -
the children.

Caminha is the last town in Portugal

Caminha Downtown. The tourists eat outside for about
12,50€ per plate + 3€ for a glass of wine.

But, just around the corner, only 20 meters into a small side street, you can get a full meal with soup and salad for only
4,50€. This was my lunch and the wine was included free of charge. It always pays to go where the locals go.

You can’t expect too much atmosphere, and don’t be surprised if the soup is served in a tin bowl. An extra glass of wine probably won’t break you at 80 cents, but you will have to take a nap after lunch. That stuff is strong.

I slept well that night and headed back to
Porto the next morning.

On the way back, Sergio waved to me to follow him. He said “Your water bottles are empty.”

But he gave me far more than water. Fresh fruit from his garden and a plate that was out of this world.

Hey! I didn’t oder the extra plate. I must have looked hungry. I didn’t know that if you wipe your plate clean, the Portuguese will bring you more. Great fish!

I invited Sergio to visit me in Germany
and stay in our guest room. What Hospitality!
