Lisbon 23rd April.

This lift was designed by a student of Eiffel in the 1890's and takes you to a walkway to the top of the city.

The old church was gutted by fire and damaged by the earthquake of 1755 which destroyed most of the city.

The trams are very colourful and seemed to be sponsored by various businesses.

Praia da Guincho 22nd April.

Nice camsite and beach at Guincho. Must for a revisit.
