After Claire and Georg's wonderful wedding we returned to lisbon for a little more exploring.
We hiked up many hills (seriously - there were lots of hills. i believe lisbon is built on seven hills and i feel like we hiked each one at least twice!) to see beautiful panoramas. (but the city was so gorgeous - it was completely worth it!)
and you know, we couldn't come all the way to portugal and not squeeze in a little time for knitting!
That evening we met up with some friends we met at the wedding and attempted to go to Claire's cousin's restaurant for dinner. Unfortunately it was closed so the taxi driver said he would drop us at the docks. After the initial shock and some convincing that he wasn't going to leave us in a scary part of town to be murdered (luckily "i'll just drop you off at the docks" means something completely different in portugal!), we had an amazing meal at a swanky restaurant right on the water.
It was a beautiful night for a walk so we strolled along the river to see the statue celebrating the explorers setting sail.
and then we journeyed just a tad further to see the gorgeous torre de belém, an amazing building built in the late 15 century.
then we caught a cab (because at this point we had walked quite a distance and it was almost midnight) and headed back to our hotel for a good night's sleep so we'd be ready for one more glorious day in lisbon!
