A new fascinating article has just been published about members of the International Women in Portugal (IWP) who recently took a trip visiting Évora and its megalith sites. The visit included a tour of the first of three prehistoric sites, where 92 megaliths remain of the originally hundred-plus. The article with photos can be see on Lisbon Live here: IWP tour of Evora

Change of Locum Chaplain Next week the Reverend Dr Martin Kitchen and his wife Sheila leave Lisbon after, what we hope, has been an enjoyable stay with us. Thank you so much for all you have done. Fr Martin’s place is taken by the Reverend Ian Eglin, who returns for a second visit to our Chaplaincy. He will be accompanied by his wife, Caroline, also an ordained Minister. Below is a message they have sent us: From The Reverends Ian and Caroline Eglin We can't believe it is 12 months since we arrived in Lisbon for our locum last year. We arrive again on 1 October for the four Sundays of October. We are looking forward to seeing you all again and catching up on news. A lot had happened since we last saw you and no doubt a lot has happened in the chaplaincy too. We have completed locum duty in Puerto de la Cruz for three months and also two months in Zurich. We are now spending some time in our own home during the summer and now ready to come to Portugal. The summer in England has been disappointing, very cool and wet so we can't wait for some of that Lisbon sunshine! See you soon Ian and Caroline

Just thought I would share with the site a great realtor I found in the Sintra area. My husband and I were looking for a place and the realtor found us a great bungalow in a lovely place. We just did not know where to start when we first looked around the area, and we ended up staying in a local hotel for a few weeks, we then across them and they found this great place.

I cannot find any information about private lessons in Portuguese in my area-can anyone please help? I live near Obidos, Caldes de Raihna, Peniche, Bombarral etc. I really do not want group lessons, as I am fluent in French and Spanish, and want to learn at my own pace. Thank you very much for any advice or contacts.
