We like Lajes...

And Praia, which is the closest town, is nice too.  The weather yesterday was gorgeous and warm enough not to need a jacket.  We have had several tell us the weather had been bad lately, so this is a good thing.

Last night, we ran into an American who works on base trying to put air in her tire.  She asked for help.  The machine was broken, though.  Bill told her there was a bunch of Portuguese men in the restaurant eating ice cream who might be of more help than we were.

The local restaurant sells Baskin Robins hard ice cream as opposed to gelato.  Gelato is very common in Europe and frankly, I think it's a lot better... But if gelato is the norm, I guess it makes sense the hard ice cream would be a novelty.
