Als wir in Lissabon ankamen, riefen wir den Gastgeber mehrmals an. Niemand antwortete, obwohl wir ihm mehrfach die Ankunftszeit mitteilten. Wir erschreckten uns. Nach mehr als einer halben Stunde konnten wir ihn endlich kontaktieren. In der Wohnung angekommen, wurden unsere Fragen bezüglich unseres Aufenthalts nur unzureichend beantwortet, da er in Eile war und nach Minuten verschwand. Als wir ihn ein weiteres Mal um Rat fragen wollten, antwortete er nicht auf unsere SMS. Ein solches Verhalten ist nicht zumutbar und unerklärlich.
