July 1, 2019. Our first official day in Lisbon. A beautiful city with amazing weather. We went from sweltering Barcelona at 90+ degrees and high humidity to 65 to 75 degrees and cool breezes off the ocean. Not much touristy stuff here and a little of our interesting neighborhood.
July 2, 2019. We went on an adventure today, not knowing any more than our first location, Bario Alto. We ended up taking the funicular tram from the top down, going to the beautiful Lisbon Zoo and just having a great day. A cool little park in Bario Alto had this amazing tree that was set up for shade. A pine(?) tree whose branches were supported from underneath making the perfect shade tree. The beautiful zoo had lots of interesting animals, was lush and covered in flowers and an amazing variety of trees.
July 3, 2019. Last full day in Portugal and in Europe. Not too much going on. We are more concentrating on getting ready to go home. A few of the shots show our AirBnB entry and stairs. It's a green door with the number 24 above it. Steep, skinny little stairs in a neighborhood that if you would have showed us before we rented it, we would never stayed there. This just goes to prove the old adage about judging a book by its cover. The Apartment was clean and recently updated and a very nice place to stay. The neighborhood was just a working class bario in a big city. All in all a fun interesting place to stay.
