Day Seven - The FADO

This was another full day at the studio working on our creations and learning techniques from Micheal.  His use of watercolor paints was a real learning experience for me.  We again had lunch in the little cafe next door -- had some free time late in the afternoon and we wanted to do a little more shopping so hopped in a taxi and took off to Cacais where the streets were lined with wonderful little shops. Then back to the hotel for a bit of rest before we were taxied to a local Saturday night treat of FADO entertainers.  I had never heard of Fado singers and after returning home, entered the word to search on the computer.  It was a fascinating education !!  Our fish and steaks were grilled in the fireplace in the same room where we were seated.  I loved the smiling 12 string quitar player !!
