Our last day in Lisbon and it was raining off and on, with 80% chance of rain for the day. We decided to play it a bit safe and be near “indoor” activities if needed.
Following our morning tour of The José Maria da Fonseca Winery, we were off to Lisbon. We crossed one of the bridges (Ponte 25 de Abril) into Lisbon. It was an instant reminder of San Francisco for all of us. As mentioned in a previous post, we didn’t have navigation or a map to help us find our way. Thank goodness for good old-fashioned street signs! Just off the bridge was signage for Belém Tower, one of our desired destinations.
I know, it is odd that I am the one doing the Technology post rather than Alan. I don’t claim to be as techie as him, but I got a little going on. As you know we set out for Portugal on Halloween. Of course, we didn’t just hop in the car and head out. No, there was loads of research and planning prior to our departure, by little old me. You see, the family depends on me doing my research and planning.
We have decided we are on a mission to see “How It’s Made” or “Where It’s Made”. There is so much around us in Spain and Portugal that is locally grown/made, so why not see what we can, first hand?
