Hello all after travelling 15hrs by an overnight train from Lisbon that had no sleeping arrangements in it to Hendaye which is the French border and then driving for another 8 hrs non stop immediately to catch a Ferry at Le Havre and ferrying across for 3 hrs and then driving again for another 2 hrs we were finally back home past midnight on Wednesday. It was supposed to have been a short 4 nights stay in Lisbon but we got grounded in Lisbon due to the air chaos. Then we decided to make our own way back since we could not see an immediate end to the problem and here I am. However it was a very enjoyable stay in Lisbon and we had a great time. I am still trying to get over the horrendous journey so I shall leave you with some images of Lisbon. Don't forget to click on the pictures to get a better view.
Our tram making its way through narrow streets of the old city. At some places there was no room for people to walk .
An elevator in the town which connects the lower level to the higher level of the city.
The Portugese are good craftsmen and they particularly seem to be good at pottery making and clay sculptres.

I loved these clay sculptres outside many restraunts and bars.
