Port of Funchal, Maderia Protugal
Finally a day off the ship!!! Today was our first day in Port and what a beautiful place it was. We have uploaded a few pics and will share more when we return home. Yes, we are wearing jackets…it was 60 degrees F and got up to about 68.
Madeira is 35 miles in length and 14 miles wide with an elevation on 6,106 feet. Portuguese is the language but most everyone spoke English that we ran into. Funchal is the capital of Maderia. We used the Euro for the very first time J it takes $1.42 in US dollars to equal 1.00 Euro so we are not making out on the deal very well. Fortunately (unfortunately) today was a holiday and most of the shops were closed so we didn’t have to spend much while shopping. Got a few postcards but the post office was closed too.
Hope all is well !
Next port is Cadiz, Spain on Monday…..bye until then.
