Lisboa

Friday, September 21: we arrived yesterday afternoon after a mainly smooth flight and metro ride to our hotel in baixa, an area rebuilt  after the 1755 earthquake. the area was rebuilt by a military engineer and is notable for the relative scarcity of tiled buildings compared with the older alfama section which we saw today. It is hot during the day but breezy and cool last night on the river tejo where we had dinner. We began today at cathedral se, where the attached photo was taken. Here we picked up our credentials for the Camino, a small booklet that willed be stamped to prove we walked every day. We will present the booklet in Santiago for a certificate of completion. Now we are out for another walk. Tonight we meet our Camino friends for dinner. Ciao!F2412CEE-7A81-470D-AB91-2123CE0B24FF.jpeg
