The walk begins

Hello, everyone.

On our third morning in Lisbon, we cleared out of our pensao and went to the city bus stop for the route to the edge of town.

The bridge  at the Parque des Nacoes

A pipeline bridge--we didn't actually need to cross that one!

Most of that day's walking was through the river valley and the swamps. We did a lot of levee walking.
That night we stayed in Vilafranca da Xira, which was a 30-ish km walk. (20 miles, about.)

We were so tired we didn't care much that we couldn't find dinner when we went looking. (Too early? Too late? Dunno.) The train station there had beautiful tiles.
