Day 50, April 18.
I just realized that in my blog my day number has been off since I crashed into that blue column. I have been on the road across the seas for 50 straight days!
Today Nuno drove me three hours to Lisbon and three hours back. His wife and daughter were there anyway, visiting her parents.
At first I didn’t like Lisbon so much, but Nuno assured me that by the end of the day I would, and he was absolutely right.
Most of the city was rebuilt in the late 1700s after a massive earthquake had destroyed most of it, but the old city up by the castle remained in tact, and that was spectacular. I loved it.
Lisbon is home to the widest river I have ever seen (I haven’t yet seen the Amazon) and probably the longest bridge over a river in the world.
On the ride we got a structure together for his Ph.D. dissertation, teaching music to students using the three principles.
