Lisbon: a few more pics

 Casa dos Passarinhos: not glossy but a great neighbourhood restaurant
and wonderful value

 Tiles@the Danish Embassy


 Abandoned and ruined building in Lapa


 Back in the Tapada das Necessidades  
(above and below)


 Green growth in a tree trunk



 A face of bitter disappointment – 
evidence that corked wine has long been a problem?


 The Foreign Ministry attached to the park

 Renovation along Lisbon's central waterfront: Ribeira das Naus

 The central part of Martim Moniz has been trasnformed with 
a series of little stalls selling snacks _ Indian, Japanese, Vietnamese etc. 
Ideal for an unprentitious, cheap light lunch



 Succulent flowers in Estrela Park
