Travels to Portugal: Lisbon and Sitra

we spent several days in lisbon. quite an interesting place. stacey was especially impressed by the number of zaras per square foot, which is roughly twice the total number in all of the US. most striking is the streets and side walks made completely out of small limestone, usually less than 6 inches swquare. every street has a different pattern. there are monuments everywhere, giant monuments. none of them give enough information to understand why there are there. there are cafes everywhere. tinly alleyways from a town built hundreds of years ago. very beautiful. and indeed, there is lots of port to choose from.

we went to visit a sintra, a tiny portuguese town less than an hour outside the city, had some beautiful castles and other views.
