Subject: Re: The Crypto-Jews in Belmonte, Portugal

Bob, thanks for sharing your cultural insights and for starting a thread we have not covered here.

We were in Belmonte and wrote about it in our Portugal, 2001 travelogue with a picture of the synagogue. Unfortunately we didn't get inside.

Reggie, you really got my mouth watering at the thought of suckling pig in Mealhada. It's the best we've ever tasted.

Regards, Linda
