last weekend we visited coimbra. it’s 2 hours north of lisbon and is known mostly for its university, which is one of the oldest in the world. it was founded in 1290. 1290 is a really long time ago. what did they teach in 1290?

on saturday we drove to the small mountain town of lousã and set out for a little hike up to talasnal a “schist village” which e swears isn’t schist but phyllite (schist is a type of rock)…  the village is made entirely out of stone, and people live there, or at least live there on the weekends and there is a bar, pension, and a little snack bar/shop. that’s it. also, of course there was a castle. it was at the beginning of the hike. here are some photos from our trip.
