Serpa Pinta

So, I have a sinus infection. And the timing of the holidays and such mean I won’t get to see a doctor until next Friday. I suppose the NHS had to fail me eventually. But that means I’m too icky feeling to come up with a witty summary of our trip to Lisbon. Only that “Lisboa” makes me think of snakes, and there was a street named Serpa Pinta which amused me. My sense of direction proved infallible except for when we wandered off the map, but I abdicate responsibility in that case. We stopped at a mosque and Chris asked for directions in Arabic, and we were on our way again. I got sunburnt, and footsore, but otherwise it was a low-key fun holiday, and I have pictures to prove it:

Part I: Castles & Cats

Part II: Boats & Bookmen

    What do you think of the castle? It definitely made me think of Shazhad. I dubbed one courtyard the “soldiers’ training yard” and the other “the garden,” and it was quite nice.
