|Christmas day sunrise|
|Train station in Lisbon|
We rolled in at 5:30 am, Portugal time. Wearily getting off, there we are at the bus/train station in Lisbon. Super early. On Christmas day. What now? We couldn’t check into our place until 11:00 am. We spend a slow morning taking a train to the neighborhood we would stay in, playing at playgrounds, and looking for a place to eat. We settled on a café that offered coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and croissants. We got to try a pastéis de nata.
|Pastel de nata. I had them about four times in Portugal; they were delightful custard-filled puff pastry.|
|The charming exterior of our apartment.|
|The line to wait for a streetcar.|
|Riding a long awaited street car.|
|This was right before Lydia fell asleep...and right around the time I wished I was asleep.|
|When the power went out on Christmas day.|
Stay tuned for our trip toÓbidos, coming up next.
