Today is already Saturday, March 7th and we are still on the beach of Bordeira.
Loes, who spends her waiting time for her seasonal job at the restaurant Cato, gave Face Europe the honour on Monday.
For Holland we have already been promised a place at her mother‘s house. Certainly also exciting, because her mother is a puppeteer.
Otto and Eva from Styria also got lost on “our” beach and accompanied us to this week’s pizza party.
Yes, it is already a tradition to walk to Gianluca and Emanuela once a week and to encourage as many other guests as possible to come along for a delicious pizza.
This time there were ten of us who walked the 1.5 km.

It must then cool in a mould and is then cut into thin strips of about 3 mm and baked floating in the oil. You would not believe how something so simple can taste so delicious.
Of course it is proven again: the cheaper and simpler the food is, the more complex is the production. There was also salad and advocado spread in addition to stuffed eggs.
We would like to invite the two dear friends to an Austrian dinner soon.
Saturday was all about supply and disposal: Sewage disposal, refueling for Fredi and a lot of shopping for us. Our supplies had already run out completely and Lidl had to be visited. It is a pity that I still could not visit the weekly market in Aljezur.
Tomorrow it’s our 15th Portuguese: Diogo, the boss of the Cato Restaurant. After we have already heard so much
