Leisurely Lisbon

Morning meanderings

Capital coffee

Wistful wanderings

Managing Metro

Twisty turnings

Summer sunshine

Required returnings

Hastening home

Weather worsening


And home you come with us

My darling Angel son

    • Hi Kim.
      We had a wonderful time exploring, via the Metro, and really surprised how clean everywhere seemed to be. The artwork was everywhere, and the black and white caricatures were terrific…. apparently there are fifty different personas depicted around the Aeropuerto Station.
      And yes, I do feel very refreshed for those two weeks away.
