Day Six - Feartil - The Craft Fair
Lunch at the little cafe next door is becoming a "dining experience" !! We were given some hours of free time before dinner -- I couldn't remember if this was the day we went back to Cascais to shop or to the casino to check it out -- either way, "free time" was always good !! The casino was nothing like anything in Las Vegas other than there was an ATM machine and lots of slots machines. The table games were nearly non-existent compared to what I am used to seeing !! Card games seemed "odd" -there were no craps tables -- roulette wheels had no chairs for players - there was a poker room, however !! The front entrance was probably the most eye catching of anything -- the red ceiling lights reflected on the black tile floors and made me feel as if I had entered another realm. The evening was spent at the craft fair near the hotel looking at all the Portuguese arts and crafts, much similar to what I would see at home. Another open air eating establishment for our evening dining pleasure was located on the grounds. By the time we finished eating, the stage close by was filled with "Fado" musicians and a crowd had gathered... The end of another perfect day !!
