So… week #39 come and went… and so, long live week #40! (which is actually also finishing…) Before that, though, this week I shall reminisce about my years in Lisbon. Too big, too crowded, too noisy, WAAAY too many cars, but the old city is quite nice! (To visit, at any rate; living there is whole new ball game…).
So we have Bairro Alto by day (no pics by night, as I was usually otherwise engaged…):
Lisbon is known as the city of the seven hills; on one of those is located Saint George’s castle (castelo de São Jorge, in the original Portuguese). The view is quite something:
Of course, no self-respecting, post-medieval castle, comes without—that’s right—cannons!
From St. George’s we also have this view from the church of Graça—the tower being the only part that survived the 1755 earthquake, totally unscathed—it still carries a 17th century bell.
And lastly, just what kind of bohemian life center would Lisbon be, without matching… ahem… cultural activities?!
All in all, I guess I really shouldn’t complain too much!
