DAY 53 … Thursday, May 3rd … Lisbon, Portugal
We spent our time ashore with Lynn's friend Leila. She gave us a reprise of the city sights (we had visited with her for an extended stay in 2010) and then took us back to her beautiful home to catch-up.
After that we returned the favor by hosting her for dinner onboard.
As usual we had a great time together.
As the ship left early, for us, we had no expectation of doing anything and were going to cheat and include photos from our previous trip for the blog.
However we decided to just take a walk close to the dock area of Alcantara. So we climbed the hill and came across what must have been the old 'ritzy’ part of the city and has now become a combination of embassy ‘row’ and upscale hotels. It’s called LAPA and what a find!
Aside – In our enthusiasm we were taking lots of photos of each of the ‘estates’ that we did not notice the police swooping down on us to stop us from photographing any of the embassies --- another fallout of 9/11!
