Monday 23rd November 2009, Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

We walked into town after breakfast and caught the Cable Car up to Monte and wandered around the Tropical Gardens for a couple of hours. after we found a cafe and ate grilled sardines and tuna for lunch sitting in the sunshine.

After that we tried to find the Imperator Gardens but had no luck it seems to be lost in a maze of small alleys! Instead we wander back to the Cable Car and return to town for some last minute shopping. Kristine gets some boots for her birthday. Back at the hotel we sit in the sun and consider a swim in the pool. On inspection however its full of bits and dead flies.

In the evening we go for a drink to a local pub and then find a restaurant close by. very nice too for our last night here.

later I phone home and speak to Mum. Dad's funeral will be a week today and Kristian will kindly pick us up at the airport tomorrow so we don't have to mess around with the trains.
