JM, between your exquisite and Peter's travel photos, I am convinced that Lisbon and surrounding areas are places I need to see.

Great photo! Can we package that sky color?

Passez un bon weekend!

Still very old and impressive. The blue sky sets off the arch so well.

Wow! It is beautiful. I'm glad they rebuilt it, even if it took a few years. :)

I love it and the yellow peeking through.

Yes, your're right a train was coming (at me) and honked at me several times to let me know it!

It's huge .. the people are so tiny. And beautifully ornate.
