Lisbon is known as Cidade Branca, the White City because of its unusual luminosity as reflected off the many white buildings.
Of course if you come along with me today on a short video jaunt through the city you'll see buildings of many colors!
Wandering in a strange new city is a unique pleasure.
I'm still relishing this one as I put together the Blurb book for my sister & I. I'm adding less photos to my Lisbon travel journal because it's stuffed full, but also because of they're going into the book instead. It's great fun making the layouts and arranging my favorite shots of the trip.
Well anyway...back to the white city sitting there beneath the bluest sky. A bluer sky I have not seen.
mmmmmm a lovely frosted blue cake of a building. I will move here and live in this building under this sky and ride the trams every night and read books in parks everyday and never ever ever work again. I will. I really will.
But first I will show you the food we ate in the blue and white city.
About that video jaunt...
