Sorry, can only confirm wine cellar visit (even) closer to the date May 29, 2013

Hello, Paula and everyone

If I don't make it to the wine cellar visit, I'll meet you at the restaurant. Is this OK? If yes, any idea of the time for dinner?

Thanks for everything.

All the best,

Local mobile phones ? May 30, 2013

Hi all,

For those from elsewhere interested in using a local mobile phone during the Conference AND during their road trips throughout Portugal (which is highly recommended and worth it !), before and after the Conference, this is just to let you know there are extremely attractive offers for that with the local U Z O operator (sorry, we are not supposed to use his to advert anything, but this is just a too good to be true offer, that seems to be tailor made for those heavy abroad-travellers we can sometimes be).

Among many others, their latest offer is about an apparently "plain and simple" but unlocked GSM cell phone (and yet with mp3, radio, stereo earphones, Bluetooth, camera, memory card slot, voice recording, Internet enabled, e-mail, java apps, Facebook chat and much more...) of a very famous Finnish companyicon_wink.gif , already loaded with a 10 € prepaid calls+SMS credit PLUS 20 € petrol vouchers , for little more than 45 €.

This means you can use it while in Portugal and then go back home (or not, Portugal is sooo beautiful that you might want to stay forevericon_smile.gif ) with quite a handy extra mobile phone you can use on any GSM network, with any SIM card in it, for just about 15 € icon_smile.gif And even if you have no GSM network at home you can still use it while travelling in most European countries, or, as a last choice, use it as an MP3 player and handy radio and voice memo recorder and digital cameraicon_wink.gif

Ain't that a nice "souvenir" to bring back too ? icon_smile.gif

But they have a lot of other cell phones too, pre-paid, low-cost calls, no strings attached, hassle-free, some more complex than others, some more expensive than others, but normally all unlocked. Can always be useful.

See you soon !


PS: you might find these things in some local shops (see their web page where exactly) but the whole set of offers is available on-line only. If you need help or want someone local to get one for you, just ask well in advance, as certain most wanted items might sell out rapidly and because delivery by post takes a few days after orders are sent.

PS2: To the site moderators, please, this should not be censored as misplaced advertisement, as I truly think this might be something helpful for many of us coming to Portugal from abroad. And I am not selling anything myself, here.
Thank you.
