I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

My first impressions of any new city are usually colored by sleep deprivation, but in the case of Lisbon, the fact that it was at least fifteen degrees hotter than I expected made my first-day stroll down to the river and back almost hallucinatory.

Moorish castles. Tiled facades on shabby streets. Retro trams, overblown monuments, and a suspicious amount of construction for an allegedly bankrupt country.
