lovers in the park
why yes, the peeps who built this bridge (25 de abril) in lisbon also built the golden gate bridge (in san francisco)
forgot where we were for a second...a monument at the mouth of the ocean for all the "explorers" who set out from portugal
belém is sort of like the big touristy spot in lisboa. and it's sort of obvious because... it's beautiful in this area.
we took the metro (which i loved by the way because it is 4 euros for an unlimited 24 hour pass. that is a good deal) and then the trolley car to belém... which was romantic in itself because i love the little trolley cars.
we walked around and saw the sights and then ate dinner on the water. well in a restaurant on the water. and it's just sort of funny because
we are either speaking english or spanish to the portuguese and they are speaking a mixture of all three and then sometimes ben is throwing in italian words and we are all confused.
it is too fun.
every time i come to europe i feel like i am in a dream. and i just want to live in that dream. but if i lived here would that dream be reality or would reality take that away? hmm. i wonder.
p.s. i might have spoken too soon about the portuguese food. better experiences in porto, portugal to come.
