Mosaic Pavements in Downtown Lisbon.

LISBON: Street Corner

When I think of what Portugal is famous for I think of four things : Port wine, cork trees, sardines, and tiles.

(If anyone Portugese is reading this, I apologise if I’ve missed out anything equally important. I’m sure its famous for football teams and players as well as many other things, but I don’t do sport and nothing else is coming to mind.  But I can say “I LOVE YOUR COUNTRY!”).  Oh, there’s also sunshine, wonderful sightseeing, history, castles, delicious food, sandy beaches, rocky coastal scenery, friendly people ………….there is quite a lot more than I’d originally thought ).

Everywhere you look in Lisbon you see tiles. On old buildings, new buildings, walls, bridges, underpasses: in fact any flat surface which can be tiled very often is.

For this week’s WHICH WAY PHOTO CHALLENGE I’m focusing on the beautiful tiled mosaic pavements in Downtown Lisbon.

I agree, very impressive photos, Helen. Portugal also won this year’s Eurovision Song Contest (just in case nobody knew).

    Thanks Hugh. I didn’t know about Eurovision beforehand, but sure got to know about it when we were there .(By the way, your comment had gone into my spam folder)

      Oh no! I hope it was just a one-off ending up in the spam folder, Helen. I’ve had my fair share of being captured by the spam monster. I’ll try leaving comments elsewhere and hope they don’t go to spam. If they do, then I’ll be straight in touch with the engineers at WordPress. Thanks for letting me know.

        Hi again Hugh. I had to approve your comment manually as if you were someone who’d never commented before.

          I’ve been leaving a few comments on other blogs this afternoon, Helen. So far, they’ve all appeared and not disappeared in the spam folder. Phew! But, I’ll keep checking that further comments don’t disappear.
