Light and Lisbon, the perfect marriage. More than 300 days each year, no matter where you stand and where you look, Lisbon glows in white and bright colours, halfway from Paris and mediterranean brightness, but with its unique personality.
One million people flock each day to Lisbon, turning it in a nightmare of cars, full transports and restaurants, noise and confusion, common to all big cities.
When the weekend comes, everybody seeks somewhere else the tranquility and peace of spirit needed to compensate the stress of a hard week. The confusion is then mounted in Cascais, Estoril, Sintra, Ericeira, Sesimbra, Arrábida, i.e. in all the good places at a short distance. There are many weekend destinations for who lives or works in Lisbon. Those who don't mind much with fuel prices go even further - Algarve is a temptation, or the search of each one's origins in the centre or north of the small and accessible country that is Portugal.
Resting is changing; and if, for those living in a city, the countryside is a relief, for who lives in the countryside (like me, in Turquel, a weekend destination for many "Lisboetas"), changing is... a big city.
Lisbon on Sunday! Wow!
Easy traffic, parking everywhere, most of it free of charge, people moving slowly with time, at last, to see and live their city, lively gardens, museums... shows... sports... malls... All available at a healthy pace.
The pleasure of finding a new detail in a city that you thought you knew for more than 50 years!
The bright eyes of that kid, happy for having his parents back to his exclusive property.
The unique sensation of watching people in search of their human dimension in the brakes of the formal day by day.
Weekend in Lisbon! A must.
