Lisbon

 We had a lovely rail trip down from Porto.  Under 3 hours, Smooth as silk, reaching speeds of 220km/ph and brilliant blue sunshine outside.

In Lisbon we stayed at a new apartment in the centre of town which was well situated for us, near the metro etc and reasonably priced.  


Lunch was at one of Lisbon's oldest and famous cafe A Brasileira, although we didn't know that at the time.  It was heading toward 2pm, we were hungry and there were local people going in there.  We had a great meal and it was reasonably priced.


We wandered back up the hill toward the Alfama and checked out the view,

a glass of Ginjinha on Rossio square, all familiar haunts.
