Lisbon in Pictures

Our four short days in Lisbon were shortened by a short bout of heatstroke, and the most comfortable bed we've encountered yet (making it even harder to get up in the morning). However, even with two weeks, Lisbon has so much to see and do we couldn't have fit it all in.

What we were able to fit in - three museums, a monastery and streetcar ride, the spiciest Goa curry we've ever eaten, some shopping while exploring downtown, an enormous street market Sunday morning, and two fabulous feasts of piri-piri chicken...

The Santa Justa Elevator - in operation for more than 100 years

The Carmo Convernt - roofless but still an amazing place

Lisbon has some amazing graffiti artists

Piri Piri Chicken - never, ever touch your eyes!

... all of which left us too exhausted to check our bus tickets to Seville before heading to the station. As it turned out, our bus departed at 10:00 and we realized we were at the wrong station at 8:30. Two metro rides across town and a mad dash through the station, we found the correct bus and settled in, saying good-bye to Lisbon... for now.
