Why no new pics?

‘cuz I lost my iPhone in Lisbon. But the good samaritans of Lisbon found it and are shipping it to me.

So be patient. I will be back on Wednesday morning.

Thanks for stalking me so far : )

And as consolation, here’s something else from Lisbon (even though I am in Barcelona):

Found in an underpass behind Padrão dos Descobrimentos. I guess someone still wants to stick to the Old World Order depicted on the map there?

 

 

 

Not at a rave party!

Welcome to Lisbon Metro. It’s a tad bit cooler than some other out there. Seriously. I meant that. O_o

The Mannequin Man

He never talked much in the first place. And then he stopped moving too.

And although the kids were mean to him, he never let his true emotions show!

He was just… blank!

Caught today, invading the Avenida 24 de Juleo. Stylish. Very stylish. And the scooter is nice too :)

The Fountain of Abundance. Neither fountain. Nor abundant.

This is at Quinta da Regaleira in Cintra, Portugal. It is a part of a labyrinthic layout of mansion/grounds/grottos/caves/gardens that were commissioned by Carvalho Monteiro, who is claimed to have been richer than the king of Portugal at the time (1904 is when the construction commenced).

The architect employed was Luigi Manini of Italy, who designed the 4-hectare plot and installed various designs in the buildings alluding to alchemy, Freemasons and the Knights Templar.

I guess Dan Brown spent some time in Cintra too ;)

It’s not Tram 28, but it’s still damn cool!

You have to love how the public transport in Lisbon is tagged. Even the trains are not spared an are sprayed over.

Needless to say the colourful choice of wagons :)

Lisbon changes colours!

Here’s the second building.

Your interpretation is as good as mine on this one.

But you gotta love the chameleon camo!

Laters!
