    The one thing that I saw as a relly big scare was the traffic. They drove very fast even on small roads, just big enough for two lanes. On the motorways the speed was over 150 Km/h.
    Other than this I saw Portugal/Algarve as a very clean and not more dangerous than any other country.

    Do not do this when you are traveling. I was positioning my car to enter a parking spot. I backed up no more than a foot and crash. The young lady driving this car had pulled up right behind me. The policia and everybody were very nice. I offered to go to a garage and get the headlight fixed. The 'other' damage and the headlight came to $220 dollars. I negotiated it down to $165 dollars and everybody was happy. Getting into an accident is always a nightmare. There was no damage to the rental.

    Be careful when driving in the hills and beautiful agricultural areas for herds of sheep or goats. The picture shows our friend Giles playing traffic cop near the Algarve area of Portugal.
