Friday, July 10, Mertola, Portugal

Another fortress town in South-central Portugal, this one high on a hill overlooking the Guadiana River. You could kayak to the Atlantic from here, as the Phoenicians, Moors, and Christian knights did.

I’ve been typically lazy the past two days, reading mostly, with occasional forays to the castle that guards this little town. I have little to report and none of it interesting. The photo above is from the patio of my Airbnb-rented room.
