Portugal: Arrival

Bom Dia from Lisboa!
We arrived yesterday in the late afternoon. We are staying at a lovely (fancy) hotel in the Alfama district, which is a tangle of hilly, cobblestones streets winding up steep hills to a Castle and to our hotel which is just outside the castle walls. We have spectacular views.
Last night we went for a walk and had dinner at a little outdoor eatery where we listened to Fado. We shared wine - Vinho Verde - with a table of drunken Japanese girls from Spain. It was a perfect evening.
Now a new day and adventures to come.
