54 Days at Sea — Lisbon;


Our hotel awaits—MS Prinsendam

It was a long first day in Lisbon. After the fado we returned to the ship and rested up for the next foray into town. The next morning we took up where we left off, including yet again passing by King John I in Praça da Figueira (Square of the Fig Tree):

King John I . . . again—Praça da Figueira (Square of the Fig Tree)

And, as during the preceding day, we passed by some really great buildings:

Lisbon, Portugal

I do so love photographing doors and windows, as you may have noticed:

There’s also all that exquisite tile everywhere:

Eventually we made it to Praça de D. Pedro IV (Square of King Pedro IV; also called Rossio Square). Here we found another king. This time it we met Pedro IV:

Here’s King Pedro IV posing for his closeup:
