OUR BUNGALOW!Click on image to view fullsize image.
After our usual lie in, we set off for the long walk into Villa do Maio at 07.30. We very nearly made it to the airport when an Aluguer (pick-up truck taxi) picked us up and took us into the town. We gave the driver 300CVE (about £2.50)
We then explored the top end of town behind the Post Office. There we found the local school and all of the 'grown up kids' waiting to start, with their smart light brown shirts and blouses and dark brown trousers for the boys and culottes for the girls.
There have been a couple of snags that I think you should all be aware of. The headboard of the queen size covers the light switch and needs to be placed over the headboard.
The other was the lack of catches for the shutters. Once pointed out, Livio was on the case. These were put on during the early part of our stay.
