Yes kids, I'm off to Lisbon and Albufeira with my friend Lily on Thursday. Tomorrow is my last day at work, but I'm making this my last official post before my departure. I AM PUMPED! It's 5 star all the way. Although sadly I'm flying coach - I swear, my heart says fly first class but my wallet says--spend an extra $1500 or more on a seat? Veto.

We're staying at The Pestana Palace in Lisbon for 5 nights. There will be lots to see and do, and I've already scouted some clubs that play hip hop--one that's rumored to be owned by actor John Malkovich. How random is that?

Then we're flying to Albufeira for 4 nights, which is in southern Portugal, which kind of is a Portuguese Riviera. We're staying at the Sheraton Algarve which looks pretty cool. Albufeira seems laid back, naturally gorgeous and appears to have quite the nightlife. Good times.

Now, I don't know if anyone will post any new blogs on CITC in my absence. Grown Woman just had a little man, so I doubt she'll be blogging. TilShop hasn't blogged since 1864; and Sassy is in litigation h*ll. But I will return with a recap of my adventures when I get back. Happy 4th of July and Happy blogging!

If you are a fan - see Rickie Lee Jones on July 12th. She is playing at Casa Das Artes-
Villa Nova de Famalicao - and it is her only gig in Portugal. Then - after you see her - PLUUEASE share!

I know you're still living it up in Portugal, but want to make sure that you knew that while you were gone, the Wrong Rev. Jesse Jackson locked up Joker of the Month and possibly the year so there's no rush to create a post.
I hope you took lost of pictures because I'm sure we can all use a piece of paradise.
