April 28 Lisbon

Enjoyed a full day of touring by myself on the Yellow Bus Tour. It steeped me into the rich Lisbon history most notably its Age of Discovery and the HUGE 1755 earthquake that nearly destroyed everything (85%). All was rebuilt using more modern techniques rather than rebuilding a medieval city.

On the more modern side, there’s evidence everywhere of their 40th anniversary celebration last Friday of reestablishing democracy after Salazar’s failed “Estado Novo.”

Great weather!!

    Your flight and first day sound exhausting but you bounced back quickly, as usual, with a good nights rest. Lisbon looks so beautiful.
