I was never sure if I would like Lisbon, but I have to admit, I’ve had a really good time here. It’s a very laid back city, with very little crime and seemingly total integration. Not to overstate a point, if not for the hills, it could be one of my favourite cities. If a younger, leaner, fitter version of myself had come here, it could have even been a place to live, at least for a while. However, that is not the case, so I’m more than happy to return to my life in Barcelona.
As I sit at the airport, once again I’m struck by an oddity
Yes, the airport really is in the city. As you stand outside the terminal, you don’t see a car park or a motorway, you see houses. These houses are right under the flight path. This causes me to wonder two things, 1) what are the property prices like? and 2) surely somebody must realise how dangerous this is, mustn’t they? Ah well, what do I know?
As long as I get out of the airport safely, I’ll be happy. So, now it’s time to say "Adeus, Lisboa and thanks for the memories."
