Princeton ziplined from Spain to Portugal today.
The team bus made its way to the town of Alcoutim, which sits on one side of the Rio Guadiana (about 14 miles up river from where it meets the Atlantic Ocean). On the opposite side, maybe a quarter mile away, was the Spanish town of Sanlucar de Guadiana.
The team ferried across the river in groups of eight and then took a Jeep up the hill on the Spanish side, where, by the way, it was an hour later. From there, it was a short walk to a launching point, from which the members of the travel party could zipline their way back over the river, crossing back into Portugal and going back an hour in time, even if the entire 720-meter ride took only 50 seconds.
Because there were 54 zipliners, it took a few hours for everyone to get through. The rest of the time was spent in the small town of Alcoutim, which features some small coffee shops and restaurants right along the water's edge. It was a cool morning, with just a little fog, which made it perfect conditions for the zip line and the cafes.
After the last member of the group had come back to Portugal, it was time to head back to Lisbon, which was a four-plus hour excursion. The team arrived at its second hotel, which is on a golf course, about three miles from the Atlantic Ocean and about 20 minutes from downtown Lisbon.

Harlem Lacrosse has expanded into the Boston area.
Keith Sargeant from NJ.com says Rutgers’ lacrosse/soccer/tennis facility is going to help football.
The facility will include training and equipment spaces for each program, new lounges and meeting rooms, coaching offices, and locker rooms that will not be shared with visiting teams.
"This new facility will allow us to take our training to the next level,'' Rutgers women's lacrosse coach Laura Brand said, via the Rutgers Big Ten Build website.
"With state of the art locker rooms and video capabilities, as well as the close proximity to our training field, our program will be given the best opportunity to improve their craft on a daily basis.''
Currently, all five programs have locker-room and office space inside the Hale Center. Moving the programs out will allow Rutgers officials to begin the third part of Phase I of the facilities plan, which includes making the Hale Center a football-only facility.
