Despite this rainy day, our “incoming” students were excited to discover the city.
We started at the school and we headed on foot to the Museum Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro. The Museum provided our ERASMUS students a very pleasant visit. They’re delighted with the tour and got a new perspective of ceramic art.
Then we walked to the city center, passing through the fruit square and shopping streets.

The goal was to reach the City Hall, where the President was awaiting us for a welcome reception.
The President Fernando Costa received the students with a welcome speech and, last but not least, with kisses and regional liquor, a “ginjinha de Óbidos”.
Lunch was served at the restaurant Maratona with the following menu:
SOPA camponesa (soup)
Bacalhau à gomes de sá (codfish)
Arroz doce (rice pudding)
Trocha de ovos (sweet made of eggs)
Pêra bêbeda (“drunk” pears)
Café com beijinhos das Caldas (coffee served with regional cookies)
And finally, to burn some of the calories ingested at lunch, a “Balance Fit” workout in theBalance Health Club & Spa..
