Lagos - Day 5Last modified 2022/09/07 19:47
Five days and I am starting to perceive the routine of this place. Beginning to become habituated to the routines. The staff sitting down in the court yeard chatting. Scrambled eggs on Wednesdays. Each morning I sit down for breakfast at 8:30 and speak with Walter before he goes to surf school, often misunderstanding what he is saying to me and saying “what?”.
Paid for Carlos to stay one more night at a cost of €12
- I will pay you back
- No, it is not necessary
- No. Is necessary. I pay you back.
- No is not necessary
- You can give me €20
- Err. No .. err, just €12 - we go down and I will pay for you. I will pay for both of us.
- You can give me €1?
- .. ok
I went over to my desk and picked up some loose change gave him €1 and we went down to reception to pay. Carlos addressed the man in Portuguese, the attendant looked at me and asked:
- Are you sure?
I confirmed and handed over €24 euros. I didn’t see Carlos again, he didn’t stay another night.
