It’s funny how everyone in Lisbon is so close to each other, and yet so friendly. It’s as though this city is one big neighbourhood, and everyone cares for each other. At each tourist destination we visited (there were about 3), there was only in total one person begging for money. I think back to Paris, where people beg, ask forcefully, and use every other trick in the book to get money out of tourists’ pockets, and feel relieved that I’m in Lisbon. It’s a universal fact that people here treasure food so much as well, SEAFOOD EVERYDAY MAN. There were barely any fast food places, and the ‘average’ touristy food here was more delicious, fresher, and cheaper than most ‘average’ touristy food elsewhere in Europe. Feeling surprised would be an understatement.
Other than that, I took a nap in a castle, woke up to see the whole of Lisbon, and walked over to a really good place for dinner.
