Renata had always wanted to see Portugal.  I had always wanted to see Renata.  After much wrangling at the travel agency, we finally managed to secure two tickets on KLM and were on our way to sunny Lisbon.  How to describe Portugal?  Like Spain or Italy, without the smiles or colors or laughter.  People just seem sort of depressed there, which is a shame because it is such a pretty place.  I think it has something to do with the economy there.  As far as I can tell, Portugal's industry consists of Port wine, sardines, tiles and monuments to the former glory of Portugal.  Here is some of what we saw.
