S: PORTUGAL 2012 TRIP
BC: UNTIL NEXT TIME
FC: PORTUGAL | 2012
1: Went to Portugal for work, it was a 12 day trip, and I worked/traveled 11 of them... I did get some time off to see the Lisbon and Belem. People from work took me out to dine and to see the sites, and this is what I saw...
2: 2012 | Travelling | and sleeping
3: View from my hotel | Home | & | Hotel
4: Lots of walking | we made it
6: good eats | Above: A very large seafood plate that Vivian and I shared. Top Right: A shrimp from the plate, as you can see it still has its head, and EYES! (very scary) Bottom Right: Portugal Style Steak, I was (quite frankly) tired of seafood!
7: More Food... Above: I went to a little place and sat outside during lunch, went there several times, this time I had chicken. Left: Pastries are everywhere in Lisbon! not sure exactly what these were called, but you could get them on every street corner!
8: on top of | the world | seeing the city by walking down the streets
9: I think this was the old palace... but I really don't remember!
11: Mosteiro dos Jerónimos: its the monastery that Vasco de Gama was entombed.
12: Torre de Belém a tourist spot, which you can clearly see from the street performer who if you pay him he would pose for a picture with you, he would either 'shoot' you in the head or the other way around!
14: The street performers were really good, most of them were 'statues' however there was musicians and others. I did give money to several of them, I believe they deserved it!
15: brian | kristina | megan | jon
17: Walking along streets seeing many beautiful things. Architecture, fountains, and sculptures. It surely worked up my hunger.
18: Movies in Portugal
19: While we were there, we saw people shooting shows or movies twice in one day... dunno if it was the same movie/show or different ones, but it was interesting to see none-the-less.
20: Hanging out
21: ...in all types of places
23: Fashion week was taking off when we arrived, we walked past, and Vivian decided she was going to join the other 'professionals' taking pictures of all the beautiful people!
