We walked past the hotel initially, as it doesn't have a big sign out of the front. The staff at the service desk were very friendly and helpful. I did get a big shock when I saw my single room at first, as it was extremely basic. There was a small single bed, very narrow room, but an enormous bathroom. The shower was on the floor level, which meant that water escaped under the shower curtain and went all over the tiles on the floor. However, I managed to cope with that. The room was clean and I didn't spend much time in there anyway. It would have been good to have had wifi in the bedrooms, but there are areas downstairs where you can acess it. The hotel is in a great location, with dozens of restaurants just down the street. It is also within easy walking distance of the main tourist attractions by the seaport. It is also close to trams, buses and trains. The price was low and did include a basic breakfast of bread, rolls, butter, jams and tea or coffee. It cost me less than 200 euros for 4 nights' accommodation, which is pretty good value.

... to splurge on a cab. This informed us of two things. First, taxi drivers are crazy with absolute no need for street and sidewalk demarcations. Second, taxis are ridiculously cheap in Lisbon. I mean 5.20 euro and this included the mandatory 23% tax on everything to attempt to meet the Euro Banking criteria for fiscal support. Each driver owned his own Mercedes-Benz taxi. No idea how they pay off car or ...
... He was a dictator that the King put in place from 1750 to 1777. He was talented, ambitious and ruthless. He was the ambassador to England and learned many modern ways which came in very handy when the earthquake hit in 1755, but he expelled the Jesuits (to keep them from monopolizing the educations system), he put the Bishop of Coimbra in prison, and broke off relations with the Pope.
He rebuilt the old city after the earthquake and that was a good thing.
... far as the connection goes. So when Dane was met with looks of confusion on the faces of the locals that he would ask about the BBQ chicken, instead of being met with BBQ chicken on every street corner like he thought he would be, you can understand his disappointment! Awww poor Dane!
Right outside our hostel was a pastry shop that was apparently pretty well known. Almost every time we walked past there would be a line up out the door and down the street. It was called ...
... these cobble stone streets come to life with everyone eating out on the pavement or just having drinks at little bars and there are heaps of those. Decided to go on a scenic tram this morning and after chatting to a local we waited patiently for a particular tram. After about 3/4hr we found out we were at the wrong stop and waiting for the wrong tram. Finally caught it and enjoyed some of the sites of Lisbon then headed off to the Castelo de St. Jorge which was once a Moorish ...
... Belem, to visit its two iconic UNESCO sites. First, though, we had to check out its famous bakery, Fabrica de Pasteis de Belem, to sample the heavenly egg custard tarts (called pasteis de Belem) that they have made for nearly 200 years--using a 300-year-old recipe they purchased from the monastery next door when the monastery shut down. The tarts were divine, and so cheap (Portugal prices are very refreshing ...
