I LOVE THIS CITY
Did I say it loud enough that I LOVE the city of Lisbon? Well, I will say it again. I LOVE IT and can’t get enough of it. The people are so nice here. People greet you Bom Dia or Boa Tarde when you meet them on the street especially the old folks. They are very helpful especially when you ask for direction and they will actually take you to your destination if you were still confused. The streets here are very narrow and lined up with cobblestones. The city looks older just like the old Europe that you see on the movies.
I’m so getting used to their Subways now. I don’t even look at the map anymore. They are so easy to navigate and don’t really mind the language difficulties. As long as I know my destination, I’m OK with it. When people tells you the directions, the sound of the place doesn’t sound like how it spells. All you have to remember is that the city was built on North, South, West and East. All I have to remember is Norte, Sur, Oeste, and Leste and Esquerdo, and direito for my left and right. Then when you buy something at the store, all you have to say is quanto é for how much is it?
