Obidos

Obidos

 On Sunday, November 18th, we went on a shore excursion to the medieval town of Obidos.  The town is about 60 miles north of Lisbon and was a marriage gift to Queen Isabel in 1282.  A tradition in Portugal is drinking cherry brandy out of tiny chocolate cups (you drink the brandy and then eat the cup).  We bought some of each in Obidos and enjoyed them after dinner with Lynn and Jim.  A strange tradition in this small town is to cover the town with fake snow in winter.  It almost never snows here, but they had some artificial snowmen ready for display.
