Vila Franca de Xira to Azambuja
Walking Day 3: 20 km, 5 hrs
We walked mostly on roads and dirt tracks today, and parallel to the railroad tracks.
Many of the lowest fields near the river were still partially covered in water, but the trails and dirt tracks were bone dry. Many grain crops had already started, others were being planted as we passed.
Our Azambuja hotel was just off the busy N-3, behind a gas station. The main restaurant wasn’t open, but the snack bar was open. We met Robbyn and Heather at dinner that evening.
