João is Portuguese for John, but as far as Jamie is concerned it’s Portuguese for “Hubba, hubba.” And that’s why I have such a tight grip on her in this photo.
We’re staying in Lisbon’s trendy Chiado neighborhood and three tuk tuk tour guides were lined up on the main street near our apartment. One was a middle-aged woman, one was an older man, and the third one was João. It really didn’t matter which guide I wanted.
João was great. He was informative and funny and charged us for a one hour tour even though he drove us around for three hours.
That’s when I said, “Hubba, hubba.”
