We arrived about 9 am Lisbon Time. My phone wasn’t working and I couldn’t access my Starbucks Card so I spent my first Euro on a Starbucks at the airport. It was not that good.
When we got to the hotel about 10, our room wasn’t ready so we got a map to go on a walk and have lunch. We walked about a mile downhill on a beautiful street. Lots of stores and signs in English and Portuguese. Portuguese looks somewhat like Spanish in print so I could pick out a few words (thank you Duo Lingo). We ate lunch at an outside cafe and then walked downhill another mile to the waterfront.
I told mom that this looks like what I would imagine San Francisco looks like with the cable cars and side streets but then there was a Times Square type building.
After we checked in to our hotel room and relaxed a little, we met the group for our welcome dinner.
