"Portugal's take on the Golden Gate Bridge. A little piece of San Francisco is here with me after all...
Celebrating Natalia Rivero-Fernández's birthday in Belém, Lisboa."
"Torre de Belém (Belém Tower), a fortified tower near Lisboa, very nice!
I have been there years ago, I remember all the details, including a strong wind.
Photo's not mine"
"The food in Lisbon is delicious. Take my word for it. I ate plenty to prove it. One of the spots to put on the list are Pastéis de Belém, a treat that has been a part of the general Lisbon culinary culture since 1837. These warm cream pastries prepared daily with over 150 employees working at this establishment by the same name, to serve 20,000 of them during the week days and 50,000 during the weekends! I get it though, they are yummy!"
"One of the must-do's of Lisbon is the Monument to the DIscoveries. Hard to imagine the intestinal fortitude those men must have had to sail off into the then unknown ... The monument is impressive ... I love the serpentine paving around the structure. The site is easily reached on the trolley."
"Chocolate Cake and Espresso break at LX Factory, Lisbon
I often work here when we're in Lisbon. They have a great co-working space as well as media firms, galleries and cute cafes.
This place, Landeau chocolates, or the gelato place, make for a great afternoon break."
