King captured a shot of me and my novo amigo leaving the lovely Anabela's pottery studio. It was really cool to watch her paint the traditional azulejo tiles that line her entire space. I chose a small glazed tile from what looked like an experimental basket with an earthy Rothko feel to come home with us.
And if you find yourself wandering around this really cool neighborhood, stop in to Charcutaria Fama d'Alfama for a bite. It's a tiny spot on a tiny street with big flavors and barreling street cars. They also turned us on to a sparkly Vinho Verde. It comes from the tip top of Portugal in the mountains (and apparently owes its name to the green terrain). Reminded us of its Spanish neighbor, the always smooth Albariño.
