Rainy in Lisbon
We haven't really been blessed with the best weather for climbing so far. We were jet lagged for a couple of days and were planning on heading up into the mountains to Pedra do Urso today, but with rainy weather, we decided to change plans for one of the next couple of weekends. My wife knew that I couldn't go until Monday to climb, so we headed to the indoor gym ("Rocodromo", in the bottom floor of the local soccer stadium) to get a good pump and try to catch up on the last few weeks of inactivity...but after we arrived, we found out that it is now closed. So looks like I have to wait until Monday to climb anyway. Good news is that we got tickets to the Sporting Club of Portugal football game (soccer match to us Americans) for tomorrow...so the long subway trip wasn't a complete loss. Hopefully, I'll have some good pictures of some bouldering on the rocky Atlantic coast or at the base of a magnificent 9th century Moorish castle on Monday. Hope the scene back home was more conducive for climbing this weekend than it was here.
