Lisbon! It’s a big city, quiet for being so large, charming, quirky, and thick with awesome architecture and colorful buildings. The hostel I’m staying in is the Old Chic Funk style. All kinds of people were at breakfast: oldsters like me, oldsters older than me, families with toddlers, hipsters, Europeans, Asians, etc., just as things should be. It’s a building from simpler times, meaning no elevators; my room is on the 4th floor.
Today I walked for miles along wide, tree-covered boulevards and visited the entirely fabulous Gulbenkian Art Museum. Prepare thyself for photos of art!
Live all you can. It’s a mistake not to.
