As we have mentioned before, it has been raining quite a bit this winter. As a consequence of that, some of our walking trails are damaged by some landslides and fallen trees. To avoid that today we had to take this week's group on an alternative walking tour. It was a little more challenging then we expected but in the end it worked out well and we all had fun! After the walk we had the unique "cozido" meal for lunch and ended our day with a hot bath in a thermal pool and a visit to the tea factory for our 5 o'clock tea.
Here are some photos of the tour:
