Lisbon, Portugal – Friday, May 25

Sunday 27 May 2012

Twelve glorious hours of sleep does wonders for the soul; hopefully for our venture into to the City, too.  Lisbon is a grand city  filled with beautiful architectureand relaxed and laid back restaurants (Lisa, notice the beanbag chairs)

yet the churches are not the scale we were used to seeing in northern Europe.What was the most dramatic was the steepness of the streetsstraight up and down!

The contrast in what the city offered was striking yet not disturbing in it’s incongruence.

We enjoyed small cafesand majestic squares, beautiful flowersand expansive wine stores,but my favorite;this gentleman probably sat here for hours feeding the pigeons.  It was a grand day in Lisbon, but we needed to call it a day!  We’ll see you tomorrow.
