After getting settled into our hostel we headed in to meet in front of the Casa da Musica.  From there we took a city bus way out to the outskirts of the city.  After what was easily an hour bus ride we got off and walked a short distance to the Atlantic Ocean.  This is the first time we saw the Atlantic and it was interesting because there were some people who had never seen an ocean before.
