Thank-you for your info regarding Lisbon; interesting to hear from those that didn't like the city; suffice to say I have lived in some very poor countries before, and even now, it is difficult to find a worse place to live than Angola!
I am sure the streets of Lisbon will be a cut above those of Luanda.
I hope you've had a pleasant summer. I will look into Estoril-given I will be going during mid-semester, (I've chosen a weekend in November to do this
), I really will be limited for time.
The Four-Seasons chain is very nice apparently, but since I am financing this out of my own pocket, I'll stick to what my student account gives me discounts on (obviously the "discounts" are limited to the flashier chains, such as the Sheraton & Intercont!-what a deal
The way the BA CEP scheme is going at the moment, looks like I'll be joining the beancounters for a while (failing that, I'm going with FR!). I hope the airline industry pulls out of this quickly.
