That’s right, my sister and her boyfriend are visiting me in the Azores. We have been very busy seeing the sights and having some great experiences. I will be posting on their time here over the next few days. Thanks everyone for your thoughts on my Thursday Thoughts. I look forward to doing more of those.
When my sister and Chris first arrived we took it easy and headed to the beach area.
Then we stopped in this place called Mimos for some lunch. My sister and I both ordered their version of a veggie burger and we both added egg on top.
Chris does eat meat, so he enjoyed a tosta mista, which is like a hot ham and cheese sandwich, but better because the ham is the European version of sliced ham, and the cheese is local.
I was pleased to see the new paint on the church in Praia.
I think it stands out so nicely now.
For dinner I took them to Buzius because I knew my sister would enjoy the squid, which I had tried the week before.
Since Chris does eat meat, we had them actually bring the sausage to the table. The servers know me, so they automatically do not bring meat. When i have company i have to let them know it is OK to bring out.
My sister and I were more than happy to eat these olives.
Both my sister and I ordered the squid, but she got hers spicy and with tentacles.
Chris had the seafood cataplana, which is a special Portuguese preparation with a cream sauce.
There you have it…their first day on the island. Plenty more to come, including pictures from our trip to another island in the Azores chain.
QUESTIONS: What do you like to take your visitors to see when they visit your town? Do you prefer cream sauces or tomato based sauces? Did you do anything exciting over the weekend?
Happy first day of school if any of your teach of take classes! I did have to go back to work today, but it was great to catch up with old friends and meet new people.
