Hotel changes - Castel de sao Jorge
After breakfast it was time to change hotels - after 3 nights on my IHG account at the Holiday Inn, it was time to move to the Intercontinental Lisbon - Carmen had 3 free Anniversary nights - our nightly hotel rate would have been 250E per night, but all were free. It came with free breakfast as well, a value of 35E per day per person. After breakfast we tried opening up a Portuguese bank account since we already had our NIF, but were turned away at 2 different banks - The bank manager said the rules for the Bank account had changed in the past year, Now we needed an address were we would be renting/living for one year. I brought all the paperwork over we had done in prior years now we go back home without a Bank Account,
In the afternoon we went to Castel de s Jorge, a little misty all afternoon made the walk like we had gone back in time, After the Castel we went into the church were Saint Anthony was born. From there we walked down the hill towards the center of town, had dinner at a very small restaurant. Carmen had sardines which is what she was looking forward to and I had lightly battered fried fish which had a great flavor with a couple of Sagres beers, Slowly walked back to the hotel for the past 40-50 minutes, Lots of walking today, knees and ankles very sore and tired, But we must move on.
