D-Man takes a snapshot of our reflections before we head to Sintra, a small village near Lisbon.
Palácio da Pena, a perfect example of 19th century Romanticism.
Quinta da Regaleira, known as Sintra’s haunted mansion. Built in the Neo-gothic and Neo-Manueline styles, it’s filled with gargoyles, shadowy gardens, a deep spiraling well, and symbolic allusions to alchemy, Masonic templars, and Portuguese myths.
A broth made with potatoes, onions, kale, garlic, salt, and olive oil. Caldo verde is a national and traditional favorite in Portuguese cuisine. It’s eaten before a main meal, as a snack between meals, at Portuguese celebrations, and yup, it’s even a great late-night drunk food.
