Relaxing Days in Colorful Lisbon – 2

Lisbon also has a name of “City of Seven Hills”, yes, it’s very hilly. When I got off at Baixa station the first time, I was totally lost. Luckily, I bought 7 day data plan sim card on my phone, looking at the map was not helpful, I had to use google navigation! Such a short distance on the map could mean a very steep uphill. It has great weather though. Although my photography tour guide told me it was unusual to have such August weather in June, the air was not humid, which was good news for tourists.

Great city view from Castelo de São Jorge:

More amazing view at the bottom of the castle, overlooking Alfama and the Tejo river:

Famous Tram that takes tourists up the hill:

Alfama, the oldest district of Lisbon:

I spent 6 days in Portugal, a beautiful, peaceful, and friendly country. Reception at hotel was trying to help in every possible way; waiter in restaurant would remind me to wear backpack on the front, etc. What can I ask more for a vacation?
