Did we mention that the Algarve region is right smack dab on the southern coast of Portugal?If we needed any reminder, this is the view (below) out of the U.S. team's equipment room. Some prime real estate for sure. The balcony of the EQ room would be great for whale watching, although as far as we know, there are no whales off the coast of Portugal. Just a lot of fish. Portugal has a quite a history of fishing and the selection of fish here in the Algarve is endless. You can get fresh sardines (not like we would, but at the supermarket today a woman had a huge bag of them), octopus, squid, cuttlefish, crabs, shrimp and prawns, lobster, spiny lobster, and many other crustaceans. They got mackerel, sea bass, cod and a vast variety of other fish and shellfish like clams, mussels, oysters, and scallops. We think our EQ manager Andrew Dessert might be tempted to go for a dip and bring back his lunch.
