Pilgrimage 2015 is on the road

Hello, everyone.
As y'all know already, we are going on pilgrimage again.
Yesterday we boarded the 0525 flight for the first phase. At 0830 today we landed in LIsbon, Portugal and officially began by taking the Lisbon metro from the airport downtown to get our first stamps:"carimbos."

We visited the shrine of St. Anthony ("of Padua" even though he was born in LIsbon!)
and the cathedral.
Then we found our guest house, took much needed nap and headed out to explore.
This is the old harbor entrance. It's a popular visiting spot. 
Tomorrow we intend to recover from the flight and possibly visit a museum or two.
