Afternoon Tea

Always never let our family join afternoon tea. We visited Setais Palace, a palace built for a delighted wife who gasped "ais!" so loudly when she saw it for the first time it echoed seven (set) times, thus it was called Setais. It is now the most expensive hotel in Portugal and we happened to wander in just before their afternoon tea. After much debate if we should splurge, we decided that we would partake in the tea rather than dinner. Afterall, it is not often that you have the chance to indulge in an extravagant afternoon tea at a palace in Portugal, and we only live once, right? Thus began the smorgasbord of eating cake and pastries for dinner and washing it down with hot chocolate. I will spare you the details, but I will tell you that we ended up deliriously full, with serious giggles, which made it much harder than is comfortable to keep down all of the sweets that we had just consumed. I am proud to report that no one threw up.
