Meat and Cheese in Portugal

We spent many nights at this fado bar while in Lisbon. Fado is the folk music of Portugal. It’s the blues music of Portugal. It’s poetic. It’s despairing. It’s melancholic. It’s so beautiful. Usually, a guitar and a vocalist tell you a story of sadness, often involving the sea. Fado singers do a few songs each and then might move to the next fado venue. We sat for many hours at a time drinking wine, eating meat and cheese, and listening to the incredible musicians share their sadness with us. It was pretty special.
