I was pleasantly surprised by my first impressions of Lisbon on my first day. I must have taken a hundred photos of the trams but could not resist photographing them again on the second day. Going up and down the hills to explore Lisbon’s neighbourhoods on foot is an absolute joy.
It’s a scorching hot day in Rome. Stephanie and I arrived just a few hours ago but after a quick stop at the hotel, we’re already making our way through the city streets. Destination unknown.. Following the gernal direction fo the Vatican, we eventually end up at Castel Sant’Agnelo, also known as Hadrian’s Tomb.

The tracks are lodged in between rows of houses and businesses. I noticed the Portuguese and Brazilian flags hanging and waited for each tram to pass by for the photo.
