My last day in Lisbon was spent walking around, enjoying the beautiful weather. In particular, I took in the Castle of Sao Jorge at the top of Alfama. This multi layered, historic site really has the best views over the city, and is a fascinating tour through successive centuries (millennia, really) of occupation, culture, and developments in the life of Lisbon.
Tomorrow morning I head to Porto (Oporto), where I will meet up with my old friend Arnaud who is flying down from London. The forecast calls for rain, but so did the forecast for my time in Lisbon, and it turned out to be mostly sunshine, so fingers crossed.
