Lisbon Urban Art

While I was in Lisbon for Christmas I noticed a couple of abandoned buildings that are now works of art. It's a true pity that we have buildings well located in the center of Lisbon in this state... but at least someone used them for something!

-Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo,

-Avenida Casal Ribeiro,

If you are wondering how they did it:

There is no place like your favorite childhood place

I've lived my childhood in Lisbon right in the center of the city. I have no complains! the city has treated me well. But when you are a child you kind of prefer to be able to run around with no constrains, which is not so compatible with living in a city.

When summer arrived I knew what that meant :) going on holidays to a little country town in Galicia, Spain.

This year I had the opportunity to go back there for Christmas :)

the view from the hill looks like a painting,

Don't even get me started in the amazing food we had there :) cooked by my Aunt,

yes! the massive octopus!! after being prepared,

I can just say super duper yummy! Everything was cooked on this antique,

After all this I could just jump of happiness!
