I went out today to a butterfly conservation area. I figured that it’d have some beautiful flowers, butterflies and bees. It had… none. So, then I visited a steam fair which we found in the area. Awful, was like some weird Craggy Island fair (google it). Consquently I got no photos … still, here instead is a photo taken from the best area in Lisbon, Parque das Nações. For an expo a few years ago, this place was recreated. It’s now home to an Oceanarium, Science Park, cable cars, variety of businesses, a huge shopping centre and best of all, wonderful outdoor art installations. Architecturally, it’s the very best part of Lisbon. So basically, if you have just a few hours in Lisbon, get the metro to this place and enjoy yourself. One word of advice, don’t take that little blue train ride, it’s awful, boring, pointless, bumpy and will just cost you 30 minutes of your life that you can never get back!
