Day 3 - Monday 31 August 2015
We woke up late because I wasn't feeling well. We pulled ourselves out of bed and ate toast with jam and some fruit on the rooftop for breakfast.
We had booked in a spot at 'Escape Hunt' for 1pm which is run by the same company doing the Segway tours. Basically you get locked in a room and have 60 minutes to crack the clues and find your way out. We got off to a slow start and couldn't figure it out so had to ask for help. Eventually we got the hang of things and got on a bit of a roll. Jazz had to dress up as the poet the room theme was based on. She looked really cute.
We didn't finish on time but they let us keep going and we finished about 10 minutes overtime. We asked the girl and she said most people finish 5-10 minutes over so we didn't feel so bad. It was a fun experience and we had to work as a team which we did well.
After Escape Hunt we thought we might do some shopping but after going into a few crappy stores we decided our feet hurt and we wanted food instead.
We wandered over to a burger place and ordered some burgers & beers.
We wanted to catch the 28 tram to Alfama as we went there on our Segway tour and there were amazing views of the river. We walked to the stop but the tram was so busy that we didn't fit so we decided to just walk and follow the tram line up the hill instead.
When we got to the top there was a shallow public pool. Tourists were washing there feet and a little boy was swimming in it. We popped our feet in but then both decided it was gross so dried our feet and kept on our way.
We went to a terrace bar on the side of a hill call Portos do Sol. We ordered some sangria and the girl bought a humungous jug over to our table. It took us over 2 hours but we managed to drink the whole thing and were both a bit tipsy by the end of it.
Jazz had booked a restaurant that she found on trip adviser in Alfama so we wandered down to were it was. This was in a very old part of town so the streets were very windy & bumpy. We had a map but weren't quite sure where we were on it so just followed the streets down the hill. We made our way to the address and the door was closed. After a moment of disappointment we decided to just go to something else nearby because there seemed to be lots of interesting places around. We decided on a place called Trigo Latino. There was no one else in the restaurant yet so we ordered some beers and some small plates to share. Everything was delicious and the waitress was very nice.
I stopped drinking part way through dinner as my sore throat was catching up with me and I wasn't feeling so well.
We had wanted to go to the Fado Bars afterwards but I wasn't feeling up to it so we caught s taxi home and went to bed early.
