Postcard from Alcobaca

Small town in north Portugal, no internet. Well, very little. Alcobaca sounds like minor licensed vice, and it's true the monastery looks like it should be on a sherry bottle label or an exotic packet of ciggies. This postcard view is literally what we see from the hotel window. Gird your loins for a one hour radio broadcast "dancing about architecture" in Lisbon and Porto.
