I wonder how you say "G'day" in Portuguese ??
Alex has given me access to this thing. Mmmm, one of those Sony Vio notebooks. Very nice indeed. Must remember to slip it into my suitcase before I leave.
Hi there peoples. These guys are hospitality personified. I might just stay another couple of weeks.
Evil wicked grin.
Went for a tour of the mighty Giulietta yesterday. Nice bit of kit. Some very well thought out design ideas and she does look quick. Hope this bloody wind dies down a bit and we get to take her out but it's not looking all that promising and I'm not German. (Hi Cam !)
I can tell you that Giulietta herself (that's the flesh and blood version) is a lovely soul, Fred is an absolute gentleman and Luis is as crazy as his old man.
Your dear old Wombat slept the sleep of the well fed and watered last night. Food here is pretty damn good I have to tell you. JimM, my professional life takes me to Spain a fair bit so I'm acclimatised when it comes to Iberian cuisine but this place can hold it's head high. That Pata Negra was yahoo whizzbang give me more please. For those of you who don't know it Pata Negra is a cured ham from free range pigs fed on acorns. If there is a better ham anywhere I've yet to taste it and the Portuguese version is right up the top. Gorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgeous.
Same is certainly true of the wines, cheeses and olive oil. Oh. Did I mention Giulietta is a damn fine cook ? We had a Portuguese cabbage soup followed by a baked Bacalao for dinner last night. Nice. I doubt you can get Portuguese cabbage down under but I need to find out.
Ok the, enough of pissing in Portuguese Pockets. Off to explore a bit of Lisbon. Cheers Queers. Have a good one.
ps - I flew to Europe via Korea. Remind to bore the crap out of you about Korean food some time. Oh yes. Japanese with a twist. Eel Sushi e.g. OH YES.
Bye for now.
ps - I did tell the Ms W to check out this thread. If you are lurking my darling, LYLM.
