Day 2
Click on "Lisboa".
Great link to read about all of the highlights 
of Lisbon and surrounding areas.


Parque Eduardo VII
Named after Britain's Edward VII who visited the city in 1903 to reaffirm the Anglo-Portuguese alliance, this is the largest park in central Lisbon.
With neatly clipped box hedging flanked by mosaic patterned walkways, it stretches uphill from Marquês de Pombal Square to a belvedere at the top with fine views. 
After seeing the view of Lisbon from the Parque Eduardo VII, we went sightseeing on the Gray Line's "Hop On ...Hop Off" tourist bus .... 
the best way to see the highlights of any large city.
Lunch ... on the way to the Castelo de São Jorge.

As the evening approached ... it got a bit chilly!
