    Cris - I used to people watch from the balcony - ciggy and coffee to keep me company - but I almost fell off a time or two tripping over plants. Now I go downstairs and sit outside 'my' café - safer and altogether more pleasant wink

        I can puff with the best. Run out of breath too wink

        I'm terrible for the coffee. I sometimes have milk - sometimes it's just a shot. Depends mainly on my heart rate ...

        And I really do enjoy watching the world go by. I have a park near me, where I like to sit and do just that. Usually I take a load of bread and feed my ducks (mine because I own them by right of feeding them so often) then I sit, knotting keyrings and just ... observe ... smoke ... chug coffee ... bliss big_smile

      Guess what FrogDropping....I chewed nicotine for 19 years. Got on the patch to get off the gum but it wasn't strong enough.

      So...Fat Tuesday....Mardi Gras here in Louisiana...I was out of gum. Usually I panic but I thought I'd  see how long I could go until I went crazy. Today is May 31 and still no gum. I have an addictive personality but this is really something.
      Blood flow? What is that? Got it back.

      Oh and Mardi Gras is sometime in February.

    B.L. (Before Lisbon) I was over active. I never had a minute to myself. Life was that way for over 20 odd years. Kids, family, full time job - yadda yadda.

    I was there in 1976? '75? -- loved the situation of the city with the mountains behind and the old port below.

    1. frogdropping profile image85
      frogdroppingposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      The port's along the estuary. Then the beaches kick in - Cascais, Estoril. The mountains are a little more inspiring further north - not to mention bringers of snow in winter. The city itself is built on seven hills.

      Which is why I use the metro a lot. Walking around Lisbon can be tough stuff! The walk from Rossio up to Bairro Alto for e.g. A killer walk and far too many steps IMO. Same when you climb up to Castelo de São Jorge - fantastic views from the castle but damn ... I whined every step of the way up!

      Lisbon needs a street elevator!
