Sightseeing

Standard

Thursday 12th April

.

Cobbled streets, rickety trams

Tiled buildings, viewing platform

Lots of walking, queues and coffee

Rainy morning, but turned out warm

.

Number 28 tram, a real must-do

Elevador de Santa Justa, why not?

Rossio Square in the Baixa District

Crowds of people, a real melting pot

.

Left the hotel at ten, back at seven

Playing tourist in Lisbon, sightseeing

And now it’s time to rest our legs

No more walking for the time being

.

Thinking of you as always

My darling Angel son

We queued for over an hour to ride on the famous Tram 28

Finally, we embarked, but had to stand

Castelo Sáo Jorge at top

Narrow streets with tram lines through the centre

Beautiful buildings, wrought-iron balconies

Tiled facades

Frankie Angel Bear came with us on the tram

Cobbled pedestrian streets

Metal man, sitting at an outdoor restaurant

The Elevador de Santa Justa, a 19th century lift

Towards the River Tagus

Looking towards Castelo Sáo Jorge over the terracotta rooftops

The Rúa de Santa Justa, from the top of the viewing platform

The top of the lift, with the viewing platform above, reached by a narrow spiral staircase
