Lisboa tiles, November 2019, canon, Sylvie GE

I had preconceived images of Lisbon, full  ofcolours, like these beautiful tiles, found everywhere in the city. Yet, when you look at the city from one of the many viewpoints where you can admire the whole city, it is  white and  Marseilles tiles that are dominating. It is always interesting and strange to compare  images we have of a place and its reality (which has not disappointed me at all), to which we must adapt, in a way. The Portuguese of Lisbon are welcoming, the city is just big enough, clean, it feels safe, cafes abound and you can get lost for hours. LG and I, however, took two days to recover from the jetlag, after an extremely tiring journey (30 hours of flight and 10 hours of waiting in the airports of Auckland, Singapore and Barcelona).

Somewhere between Nelson and Lisbon

Between Nelson and= Auckland, Canon, Sylvie GE
Somewhere between Nelson and Lisbon via Auckland and Barcelona. Some articles are already online for the next few days, until the vagaries of  the internet allow me to put something online and respond to comments. I have not thought about the form of the posts  during this trip, just following theinspiration of the moment.
