- ‘The day before beginning a tour of the Minho region in northern Portugal, I was logged onto the Internet looking for hospitals near the remote pousada on the Spanish border where my seven-year-old son and I would be spending our third night.’
- ‘The goal: to paddle back to the pousada in time to savor every last second of an hourlong massage.’
Portuguese, literally ‘resting place’.
