Jodie and I flew from Madrid to Lisbon today. Short flight, about 1 hour. The subway was easy to use, well, once we got help with buying single use tickets.
The hotel! Wow! Evolution Hotel is one of the most modern hotels I’ve stayed in. And you see the large, glass walled sauna overlooking the major road below.
After lunch at a nearby, and very nice, restaurant we walked down towards the waterside area. We are joining others tomorrow and will be starting our trip with a walking tour around similar areas. So this is a cursory view of what we’ve seen and commentary-light.
My initial view of Lisbon is very confused. Some interesting buildings, that don’t look especially old. Some wide avenues between the business and tourist precincts and that have grass, plants, and scuptures or water. Hopefully after tomorrow’s tour I’ll have a better view of what Lisbon is really like.
