We take the Metro blue line, transfer to the green line and get off at Intendente Station then meet our guide, Miguel, in front of the 1908 Lisboa Hotel. Once again due to the off-season and scheduling during the week William are the only participants of the tour. Miguel explains his background as a professional photographer then we talk about our cameras and some photo basics. We set our cameras to A (aperture priority), make appropriate adjustments and we begin strolling the streets of the Mouraria area of Lisbon. It is some of the same streets as we saw yesterday, but today our eyes take priority over our stomachs. Miguel provides helpful coaching and recommendations along the way and we enjoy talking with him. The quality of our photos improve as a result.
We're starving and Miguel offers to walk us to a well-known seafood restaurant. When we arrive the line is long and no one gives a hint as to how long we will need to wait. We decide to take the Metro back home and find a local restaurant. We find a real winner, a family place where the salmon is so good I would almost give up my first-born for another portion (sorry Paul).
When I crash on the couch in our apartment after dinner I look at my pedometer application. We did 13,500 steps this afternoon!
