Tiles of Lisbon

I love tiles. Always have. Loved them long before I stepped in Lisbon. So you could imagine my glee at finding so many of them in Lisbon. As we toured the city via the HOHO bus, I had my sights on the beautiful building facades decorated with tiles of exquisite designs. I wish I had time to visit the tile museum so that I could learn more about them.

Azulejo (tile in Portuguese) write up on Wiki here. Another very helpful write up on tiles here.

Lisbon Thru The Lens

For those who read the previous post you know that we bought tickets to the HOHO bus while we were doing most of deliberating what our next move would be. Enroute to the airport, nothing stopped me from sightseeing - not the weather, not the cold, not the big thing hanging over our head, nothing. Lisbon is so much prettier, so much more charming than I ever imagined.

For now, here are some of the shots I took of the beautiful city.

There is something about the street, the road that I am traveling that fascinates me a lot which is why I constantly take photos of it.
