Lisbon, Portugal - 20th May 2009

By: Swit

Still here!

I left that garden and decided to continue discovering that part of Lisbon.

I immediately found the Basilic of Estrela.

http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/2262/1006791.jpg
http://img144.imageshack.us/img144/4774/1006792.jpg
http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/7823/1006797.jpg

I see a yellow tramway getting closer! I better stay out of the street!  :o
http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/1128/1006798.jpg

And a red one. I found out these reds are only for tourists. That's me!  B)
http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/9951/1006799.jpg
http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/8784/1006801.jpg

Then I saw some traditional buildings, some with portuguese tiles.
http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/4158/1006800.jpg

And this is the corner of the official house where the Prime Minister lives. I'm being watched by those cameras!
http://img172.imageshack.us/img172/4038/1006802.jpg

Hi! Here I am with a traditional clothing from the university students!  :D
http://img172.imageshack.us/img172/8310/1006803.jpg

Continuing the PM house is the Assembly of the Republic, where the laws are discussed and voted.
http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/115/1006804.jpg
I also visited the gardens on the side.
http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/4640/1006805.jpg
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/9138/1006806.jpg
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/590/1006808.jpg

It had some interesting statues. I liked the lions the most!
http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/511/1006809.jpg
http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/3264/1006812.jpg
http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/9646/1006814.jpg
http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/8459/1006818.jpg

It's getting late. Now it's the time to visit the front part of the Assembley building.
http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/1122/1006819.jpg
http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/7787/1006820.jpg
http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/5342/1006821.jpg
http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/9366/1006822.jpg
http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/9061/1006823.jpg
http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/2416/1006825.jpg
http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/9589/1006826.jpg
http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/6188/1006832.jpg

Bye for now! I'm tired!  :rolleyes:
