Waiting for our lunch which had been prepared that morning and cooked all day in the hot springs





The end result was a wonderful assortment of meat and vegetables.

The iconic Visa do Rei viewpoint which overlooks the two lakes of Sete Cidades

We stopped at Lagoa do Fogo, supposedly a beautiful lake in a crater. The lake lived up to its name--our guide and driver attempted to blow the fog away.
