It's a rich-looking, very busy city for one that's supposed to be on the EU's sick list. I only had a couple hours to look around, but here's glimpses of what the city's like.
Lisbon Castle...I tried to get up to see it; I heard it was open till 6pm. It is, but they stop selling tickets at 5:30 and I arrived at 5:35. Dammit.
Shot of Lisbon's 25 April Bridge, fashioned after the Golden Gate.
Inside one of Lisbon's more self-deprecating churches.
The Alfama District, near the harbor, to give you an idea of how the old city's built.
Very tight streets.
But there's a square with a statue every 200 feet in that town.
More later; right now I need to sit in a hot bath for the next five years.
