Colorful Streets in Lisbon

 It's so easy to wander around Lisbon there is always something interesting just around the corner.

 Lisbon is very hilly and meandering around town can be like a full on hike up and down stairs all day long. Just meant I got to have more queijadas for fuel to get around town :)

 oh the tiles.... so lovely

loads of street art everywhere!

 .......and people popping out of windows.... In the bright sun it's kinda hard to see them too, like this image, I didn't even notice the woman in the window until I got home and was editing photos. As a woman traveling alone, Lisbon felt very safe and easy. I did however like the added watchful eyes of the moms and grandmothers in the windows keeping tabs on the what's going on in the streets.

I went to Lisbon in the late spring hoping to have some mild temperatures but while I was there,  there were many days in the 90's. Luckily once mid day was past there was plenty of good shade in the narrow winding streets.
