“” Passeio o seu cão de saquinho na mão!” ‘Take your dog for a walk with a poop bag in your hand!”
I saw this funny poster near one of my favorite places in Lisbon, Miradouro da Graça, a splendid viewpoint offering a panoramic view over Lisbon.
Home made coats… Feira da Ladra,
Lisbons’ legendary flea market in wintertime (about 18 degrees C…..)
This one has very sad eyes….
Walking up to the old castelo São Jorge (Castle of Saint George), located on the highest of the seven hills of the historic center of Lisbon.
Alfama, at lunch time (almoço).
Alfama: famous historic old neighborhood in Lisbon.
I manage to get lost every time I walk there…! It’s a labyrinth of lanes (becos) paved with pebbles, tiny alleys, steps, arches, courtyards and small squares. Houses, shouldering each other, with tiles (azulejos) and wrought iron balconies with lazy cats, birds in cages and sometimes a sleeping dog…. 🙂
Cafe Noobai near the river Tagus
The entrance of Cafe Noobai is located on Miradoura de Santa Catarina, also known as Adamastor. This bar and restaurant is certainly worth a visit because of the wonderful view over the Tejo river side.
🙁 Beggar with his small dog in Lisbon city center 🙁
Beggars & dogs
In Lisbon there are many beggars on the streets. Sadly enough some of them use animals, many tourists give money to this boy. The dog doesn’t look very happy on the street in the heat of the summer……you’ll find him ‘working’ in the city center Baixa.
Portuguese Water Dog (picture: Chicago Tribune)
Obama’s daughter Malia walks the First Family’s new puppy, Bo, on the grounds of the White House.
So far, I never saw a Portuguese ‘Water Dog’ in Lisbon…… But maybe Obama bought him because these very smart dogs were often taken with sailors during the overseas Portuguese discoveries ? 😉
