Life Ain't Easy


Mouraria is one of Lisbon's oldest districts. It's located on the foothills of the castle and it's now the most multicultural area in town.

What a wonderful street shot. Those steps would be hard to navigate for some of us older folks, though. Looks like a quaint and most interesting area.

That can be a tough climb.

I've been wondering about this for years following your blog... Up and down, up and down all the old people go...

Those stairs will keep her fit, JM!

Great streetscene! Brave old woman.

When we visit cities with hilly areas - Montmartre in Paris, Jilly's Gorbio, Edinburgh, San Francisco - I sometimes wonder about the lives of the elderly and those with medical impairments. Do they struggle in pain or become shut-ins? This woman is not about to give up.

Lovely shot.
I wonder how these old people can step up all these stairs you have there..

Looks like a long way up! I'm glad she has a cane and a railing to help her.

I have been watching documentaries of various European destinations and have notices the steep streets with steps … was wondering how it is for older folk.

When in Europe, I have been struck at the way very old men and women are able to walk up or down very steep steps. I guess it is because they have done so for decades.
