sardines, originally uploaded by Alida's Photos.

One of the frequent items on the menu, sardines are eaten by many people in Lisbon. Usually they are fried and served with rice and french fries. Where's the veggies?

Lisbon, Portugal

We've taken the Metro just about everywhere. Easy to use and clean, makes me wonder why we can't do this in Manhattan!

This traveling Long Island woman is now in Portugal. Lisbon is a wonderful city and a real surprise to new visitors. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. The people are wonderful and are very friendly. Photos will be posted of this beautiful country, for the next few weeks.

beach walk

An older photo, I was looking for this on flickr and realized I never posted it. (I'm working on a project of beach photos for a person who wants to decorate their home with a beach theme.) Don't know whether or not this will work.
What do you think? Is this something you would hang in your home?
