Postcards from Lisbon
Every time I visit a new place I like to create a personal goal setting: eat like locals, use my feet as the main conveyance, enjoying the moment to the max and then take the picture (and not vice versa) and mimic the atmosphere as much as possible. With the latter I mean you will never, ever see me wearing the tourist costume in bermuda shorts, flip-flops and fish hat, as much as I would love to sneak into a tour bus without paying the ticket.
In this case I took quite literal the concept of mimicking the city, while this was actually my first time in Lisbon, after watching some videos and photos courtesy of technology and Google, I was able to admire the facades, the streets and the colorful tiling for the first time, and I knew exactly which dress was absolutely perfect for it, maybe a little more than what I thought.
Just like New York and Barcelona have their yellow taxis, Lisbon it’s full of this vibrant color along its trolley, tiles, facades and its delicious cream cakes from Belen (pastel de nata, warning: highly addictive), all of them complementing each other perfectly with the clear blue sky.
