Depressingly Sad

When palm trees were alive you didn't even notice how ugly those buildings are.
If you don't know why they're dying, click here or here.

National Coach Museum

Royal Riding Arena (1787) at Belém, Lisbon

The new (and huge) coach museum is about to open doors. I guess this will be my last post on this place.

Rickshaws, Tuk Tuks, GOcars, You Name It

The amount and variety of funny vehicles for tourists made Lisbon's historic downtown look like a giant amusement park last summer. It's quieter now, but even so...

Decorated For The Season

Banks own some of the most beautiful buildings at downtown Lisbon.

It's frustrating to know the preposterous amount of taxes we pay is used to save banks regardless of the crimes commited by many bankers and other speculators. If only 2015 could bring some more justice... but I know I'm being naïf, things will never change.

Happy New Year everyone!
