I can hear the sounds of a lively group of people singing “Happy Birthday” from a few houses down. The roads are very narrow in this historical part of Lisbon and sounds carry in the quiet of the night.
The day was rushed and long. I did manage a lovely lunch with a friend at RTP and I had dinner at her house as well. She showed me a few of the studios and I snuck in a photo of the RTP Africa one that was about to go on air.
I had conversations with two taxi drivers, walked more than 10,000 steps (6,65kms), burned 1,866 calories and climbed 21 flights of stairs, all while taking loads of photos.
I took some photos of some of the gorgeous buildings at the Campus de Justiça – a government department campus where some courts are located. A security guard came out of one of them and politely told me to not take photos of the government buildings. I complied as I forgot that most countries don’t like you to take photos of their government buildings. There are some countries that would’ve arrested me on the spot for doing that.
I have more errands to take care of tomorrow and I hope to be able to put my feet up as well, and maybe, just maybe, have time to download some of the pics I’ve taken and post them on this blog.
