Bairro Alto at night

On our last night in Portugal we had the pleasure of dining at Flor da Laranja, a Moroccan restaurant in the Bairro Alto district of Lisbon.

Ann Marie and I have lived in and around several large cities, including New York and Atlanta.  Usually, it’s not a good thing to wander the streets of these cities after dark.  Bairro Alto was different.  The neighborhood seems to come alive after dark and the streets are full of people.  We actually felt safer after dark in Bairro Alto than during the day.

I think this street scene captures the vibrant feel of Bairro Alto after dark.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
