Carmen and Joao were the warmest and most welcoming hosts we have ever encountered. Both were eager to chat and offer suggestions for sightseeing or dining and listen to our daily experiences in their charming city. Breakfast was a work of art. When we arrived back at the guest house after walking an entire day in the chilly rain, Carmen took pity on me and brought a pot of hot tea to our room. It was thoughtful little touches like this that made the visit so enjoyable. Our room overlooked the river and gave us a beautiful view of the lights reflecting on the water surface. Leaving them was difficult - we hugged goodbye and sadly left our new friends.
