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.
