My Holiday In Portugal

Monday, March 27, 2006


This place is called Baixa. This is where you can find the typical hustle and bustle of the city life. You will be able to find many of Lisbons oldest traditional shops.

On this day, as you can see, it wasnt very busy at all. Its very easy to get around in Lisbon. You can find metro, buses, trams, trains and taxis. On one of these photos you can see the elevator. I think i paid 4€ euros return ticket. The elevator takes you all the way to the top. There are 3 levels, the top level consists of a restaurant. The views are magnificent. You can see the whole of Lisbon. From the castle on top of the hill to the view of the ocean. The elevator was full of tourists. All i could hear were foreign languages from german, italian, french and english. Sometimes it doenst even feel that im in Portugal. We start talking to other tourists in english and it feels amazing when they say good things about my country. I remember on this day we had lunch in a restaurant. Eatting out here is afford, i think its quiet cheap. On this day we had 4 mains, 4 drinks, 2 desserts, 2 coffees and we paid 29€. In aussie dollar about $47.00. !!! Pretty cheap i reckon.
