A crazy day. The weather went from bright sunshine to downpour and back so many times that I lost track. I took a whirlwind tour of Lisbon, then left town...or at least tried. I have never been so lost in my whole life. The road markings are terrible here, and they have these pay highways that once you get on in the wrong direction, you can't turn around for 40km.

I spent about 10 hours trying to get back to Lagos, eventually calling it a day once I found a town large enough to have accommodation. I went straight to bed to try and warm up.

I'll do the last couple of hours in the morning.
