WordPress Weekly Photo: Bridge

The Rua Da Academia das Ciências in Lisbon is a narrow lane 100m from our family’s abode. Cars that turn into it have to slow down to navigate the sharp turn and pedestrians hug the wall to let the cars pass. The arch and the bridge a bit further on used to connect a convent and a church many centuries ago. It is rumoured that the priests secretly used the bridge at night to visit the nuns.

      When I walk those narrow streets I wonder about the histories of the buildings and the people who lived in them.
