Portugal is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to! Why is this not a more popular travel destination?? We figure that none of the cities here have an equivalent to the Eiffel Tower, Parthenon, etc but Lisbon has proved to be a treasure in it's own right. It doesn't need one major tourist attraction, the whole place is just lovely! As one girl in the hostel described it, "Lisbon has heart". If I were a city I would hope to be described in such a manner.
We went to church today and it was something else, in a good way. I cried 3 times if that helps you understand a bit more. When we were getting ready to leave we stopped to chat with the missionaries (one from Tennessee and one from Utah) and a man approached us and in broken English said, "Welcome....you are.....home".
Tears. And more tears. And more tears as I write this.
Headed to Barcelona tomorrow!
Love you and see (some of you) SOON
