Lisbon, Portugal, Sat 26th April 2008

Lisbon is a beautiful city. Here are some photos entering the city along the Tejo River early in the morning and then leaving in the evening.
We rode the trolley got off at the wrong stop and found the Saturday morning market "Campo de Santa Clara". We walked to the Largo Santa Lucia, with views to the waterfront. Made our way through the Alfama area up to Saint George's Castle "Castelo de Sao Jorge", named after the patron saint of England by a Spanish King to keep his English homesick Queen happy.
Took a bus down to Praca da Figuieura, the Baixa shopping area of the old town. Had cod sandwiches for lunch, cabbage soup and beer.
Walked the mosaic stone streets and finally made our way to the Commercial Square "Praco do Commercio", by the seafront to take our shuttle back to the ship.
Sat on deck enjoying our departure back along the Tejo River and iced my feet back at the cabin. I did very much appreciate the ice suppled every day in our cabin. I put it to good use.
