An old school friend and I spent a few days in Lisbon recently and found it to be a fascinating city. The architecture is amazing, even the buildings that are only shells, hold a certain magic. We found the hop on, hop off buses the best way to see the different areas which was great when the sun shone but not so good on the rainy days, especially when we didn't realise that the seats were wetter than we thought and both had a nasty surprise when we stood up!!
Here are a few highlights from our trip.
Several thousands of these tarts are made daily at the Pasteis de Belem where we partook of the delicacies!
in particular Pena Palace (below),
Back home now and preparing for the start of my new courses this week.
Chris was busy while I was away setting up his new blog, do take a look as all comments and feedback would be much appreciated.
Thanks for visiting, I'll be back soon.
