Now we were back mainly to meet old friends Tell and his wife Dorotea.
Tell appears on this blog several times sailing Tarita from Curacao to Galapagos as well as crewing with Dorotea on Dora Mac from Sicily over Sardinia to Mallorca.
Now we all met onboard Dora Mac for dinner as well as one night out enjoying the Portuguese kitchen.
Now being in Portugal we again tried to fill up our propanetanks but also in Portugal this seems to be impossible. Subsequently I surrendered and bought a new Portuguese bottle of butane which means also a new adapter.
Many European countries now have the system of changing an empty tank for a full one. The problem is that all countries have different tanks and many don´t fit in your boats propanetank holders.Let´s see how we manage with Portuguese tanks in the rest of the Med. My guess is we will need to change tanks again several times and get rid of the "useless ones". What a waste !
