Cliff Drive and Indian Cuisine– Near the marina at Albufeira, we ventured the winding roads along steep cliffs to see the mansions that overlook the ocean and marina. Along the way we encountered gypsies who have taken over deserted homes along the banks. It is quite a paradox to see abject poverty just a few feet from posh vacation homes. After a hair raising tour along steep cliffs we came back to Old Town Albuferia to enjoy a wonderful Indian dinner at Jaipur Indian Restaurant. The young waiter picked out several dishes including lamb, chicken and prawns for us to sample. It was by far the best meal we have had in Portugal and we promised to return before we leave!
