But first, a few last photos of our morning in Cádiz.
but maybe we should have
at Cádiz's Central Market
getting ready to open
before crossing into Portugal
we were in another time zone
province of Portugal
New York Jets jersey
on this utility pole
as the locals call Lisbon
Laurie wanted to know what
time we got into Lisbon
The elevator at our
V Dinastia Lisbon Guest House . . .
. . . is OLD!
This statue is new
Another reflections photo
The police station by our hotel
and next to a Metro stop
Lisbon loves bright colors
The people here like an outdoor
cup of coffee on a warm afternoon too
More bright colors
The Old City lay below us
The Castelo de São Jorge
overlooking the city
Lisbon has lots of statues
like this one of Eduardo Coelho
Laurie noted the mixture of Arabic
and Roman numerals in Eduardo's
Mobile book seller
Our casually dressed conductor
was ready to whisk us away
We were stylin'
More tributes to fallen heroes
Not a church but official looking
What the . . .
. . . oh, just people from Asturias,
Spain parading around at a street fair
trying to drum up tourists
Do you guys know of a good restaurant?
Let me think about that . . .
Hmm . . .
That's a tough question,
there are so many choices . . .
Beats me. You two are on your own
for dinner tonight, sorry
Thus rebuked by the ancients,
Henry the Navigator's harbor is
just on the other side of this arch
Hey, this place looks good
The only thing on the menu is . . .
. . . a cod and cheese deep fried pastel,
but it IS made with love!
Archway near the harbor
Overlooking Lisbon's Harbor
Let the trampling begin!
Don't the Grimaldis rule Monaco?
How old is this lamp?
Or this church for that matter?
Sporting a haircut like Jacob's
We may be in need of some repairs here
How do you spell that?
Did I mention that Portugal is famous
for their production of cork?
Paul Petrich's dream store
WE DID IT!!!
It would be a great spot for people visiting Lisbon during a cruise ship stop to take a break.
This little wine bar sells excellent
wines and a killer meat and cheese plate
Plus it had atmosphere
Pedestrians BEWARE . . .
trollies may make wide turns
Magic Hour in Lisbon
I like arches
Gateway to the Harbor
Nope, the Metro would be easier
The old aqueduct by our hotel
