Lisbon, again

We walked across the boulevard from the monastery to see the monument erected in 1960 to commemorate Lisbon explorers. Bob is checking out the marble men...that make him look small:



Lisbon is known as a tile city, with beautiful tile work either depicting a scene, or just beauty, and is thrown around everywhere.

These particular wavy tile lines give the optical illusion of uneven pavement, when viewed from the other direction. Trust me. But it is flat.

So today we are packing up and moving to another (fancy) hotel where we will join our tour group for dinner tonight. We may leave if there is no terrace, fancy or not.

Let the good times roll, y'all!

Not sure my astigmatism would like a wavy floor. But it is amazing from this distance.
