Extra time in Lisbon

I walked around mostly, trying to keep away from people. I have a lot more to read, soI am enjoying this extra time. I feel badly for putting this burden on my daughter, but she will be fine. She will have her well deserved vacation soon. I have advised on extra contacts and toothpaste which I had to find.

More murals. There is a lot of graffiti in Lisbon, some artistic, some not.
Love the sidewalks
Dinner place yesterday
Stuffed mushrooms
My view at the second hotel. It was actually very cute. A Rick Steves group was here when I was, maybe even Rick Steves or is he dead.
The cute bar with a nice overworked bartender
Breakfast
Third hotel in Lisbon. So cute
The bathroom. So nautical
Window seat
The pink street. Fun by day, danger by night. Can’t wait!

I just took a second Covid test. I will be emailed within two hours to see what is next. The weather is perfect, warm in the sun, cool in the shade. I am very close to a Food Hall that I went to a few days ago. I think I’ll wander over.

Don’t cry for me Coronado…

Just sitting at a cute and busy cafe, enjoying my quarantine. Rose helps. My view is incredible. A very ancient castle in front of me, St George’s. Then at one o’clock, the bay? Or Atlantic, cute gay couple then a few people with tattoos and piercings, having a few beers, on to 4 pm.. guy in a New Zealand shirt having a coffee. Behind me the bistro with a colorful cast of characters, 11 pm the single girls and in front of me a couple whose baby hates the dad.. They are so frustrated and drinking Aperol spritz’s. This is fun! Photos to follow.

To blog or not to Blog

I tested positive! Wtf! I was having a nice lunch and reading and this popped up. Of course my phone was near dead. I finished my wine and ubered to my hotel. I was a pretty much packed already but grabbed everything and booked a different hotel. I couldn’t fathom staying in a room with no open air. Such a problem. Got to the hotel and realized I left my passport in the safe. I was nervous of going back but I had to. I felt like time was of the essence. The front desk that had been empty the past few days was full of people checking in. Would I be put in Covid handcuffs? I got to my room, ordered another Uber with my passport secure. And I ended up with a window that opened, really nice people at the quaint hotel and a concert outside my room. I could swear it was Sir Elton John, so quarantine or not, not that it has been “mandated” by anyone, I went to see! Not Elton but pretty awesome!! Concert in the park with a wine bar! And seats available to sit on!! I truly have good Karma!!
