Bruno from We Hate Tourism Tours and his partner Damian, manager of an hostel in one of the most beautiful spots in Lisbon (Stª Catarina) were the first to arrive and were immediately greeted in the garden with a Porto tonic. They were followed by Chris, an American in Lisbon, and his friend Markus from Salzburg.
Ten minutes later was the time to Carly, an English yoga teacher and her good friend Bell, a Portuguese who lived in Germany, to arrive.
The group was completed with me, Rita, João and Ricardo, the hosts!

The wine Casa da Carvalha, from Dão, was a perfect companion throughout the dinner and the dessert was sparked by a great Moscatel de Setúbal from Venâncio da Costa Lima followed by the exquisite Moscatel Roxo from Sivipa which pared with the almond pie made by Rita, a winning combination!

The next adventure will be the 7th of May, hopefully with a warmer night so we can eat outside under the stars.
