Day 2 (Quick notes from the day; I'm almost out of power)
Slept till 9 - lovely breakfast; so many choices)
Touring Lisbon - think San Francisco; add several 100 yrs
Tiles - area around our B&B has many tile bldgs.
So much to see; so little time
old to new to old to new - head spinning
Aquaduct is gravity fed - water fed fountains thru out city.
Find myself using words I hear over. Over - aqua, baxia
City of 3 mil people
Coaches (PB - I want one!) & I wondered why the bldg was so large!
So much to see; so little time. Repeat, repeat!!!
Hmmm, wine by the glass not available.
I went from blasé regarding eating a custard tart to...wow, you can't eat just one!
There's no leisurely dining in Lisbon; not at all rude but they do hurry you along. S'ok; so much to see; so little time!
Life would be simpler if Philip just said "yes dear."
On the waterfront; I'm having Bream, Philip - prawns curry and...wait for it...Vino Verde!
THE BEST meal - must find out what herbs were in the olive oil. Server told me to put it on fish & vegs. Oh...I like tuna sauce - Philip's not going there yet.
Return to B&B - steep, mapless, endless...Vino Verde sobering. (we decided to walk one of Lisboa's 7 hills.)
5:30PM drinks on the patio at the B&B.
