My flight touched down in Lisbon at 11:20 this morning. Since I was seated over the wing I couldn’t catch a solid glimpse of the city as we descended towards the runway. All I could make out were bits of orange roof tops. The trip from JFK was smooth and I managed to sleep about 4 hours. I will say that TAP is the cleanest airline I’ve ever flown.
Two of my coworkers arrived ahead of me and we shared a taxi to our apartment. The driver didn’t speak or understand much English and flipped through what appeared to be a phone book looking for our address. There was a neglected GPS on the dashboard-clearly he’s just an old school driver. We pulled it up on Google Maps to get started in the right direction.
There’s a cafe connected to the co working building and the front sidewalk is full of tables. It’s not leaning in real life. Just a poor photo on my end.
Lisbon is famous for their intricate tilework. I found a few examples.
There’s also a rooftop deck boasting great views!
After a few hours in the city I can truly say everything is up hill in both directions!
