Lisbon, Portugal

Even though there are new tram tracks in Atlanta (the “Downtown Loop”), I really miss the look of classic rail vehicles and sound of tramways. While in Lisbon, I tried not to miss any opportunity to photo-hunt beautiful Lisbon Trams [smile]. ***Just FYI, The first tramway in Lisbon entered service 145 years ago (on 17 November 1873), as a horsecar …

Well, I think it’s time for a closure… The last photo post about this year’s Euro Trip is here! What’s the first thing about Athens that comes on my mind? – TEMPERATURE! It was 109F (43C)! Sorry, I can’t say I enjoyed the street photography in Athens. But, no worries, I got a few cool shots to share [wink]. Most …
