Eu pensava que já vos tinha mostrado todas as fotografias que tirei no dia em que andei a passear por Belém com a Carla, mas, afinal, ainda tinha estas quatro fotografias esquecidas nos arquivos. Depois do Museu da Electricidade e do Jardim Botânico da Ajuda, decidimos acabar o dia no Palácio da Ajuda. Eu já lá tinha estado aquando da exposição da Joana Vasconcelos, mas, no meio de tantas pessoas, nem consegui prestar atenção à maioria das salas por onde passei. Desta vez, a visita foi feita com calma e com atenção a todos os belíssimos pormenores que fazem deste um monumento que merece ser mais visitado.

I thought I already showed you all the photos I took on the day I went strolling around Belém with Carla, but it turns out I still had these four photos left on my archives. After the Electricity Museum and the Botanical Garden of Ajuda, we decided to end the day at the Palace of Ajuda. I'd alrealy been there once to see an exhibition by Joana Vasconcelos, but, in the midst of so many people, I couldn't really pay attention to most of the rooms I was in. This time, we took our time to see everything and pay attention to all the beautiful details that make this a monument that deserves to have much more visitors.

Numa semana que tem sido passada entre espirros, chávenas de chá e muitos lenços de papel (e o Matisse a servir-me de manta pessoal), há algo que me tem dado muito alento: em Março vou, finalmente, a Berlim e não podia estar mais excitada! Eu já tenho em vista algumas opções de alojamento pelo Airbnb, mas se conhecerem sugestões boas e baratas, sou toda ouvidos!

On a week that's been filled with sneezing, cups of tea and many paper tissues (and Matisse as my personal blanket), there's something that's been keeping me satisfied: in March I'm finally going to Berlin and I couldn't be more excited! I already have my eye on a few accomodation options over at Airbnb, but if you happen to know good and cheap places, I'm all ears!

Numa tarde nada solarenga e fotogénica, decidi ir até Monsanto à procura do antigo restaurante panorâmico, um edifício que, segundo dizem, tem a melhor vista de Lisboa, mas, infelizmente, isso não o salvou do completo abandono. Depois de muitas voltas e inversões de marcha, lá o encontrei e tirei estas fotografias. Queria ter tido a coragem de entrar, mas depois de ter visto um grupo de jovens a ser expulso do local, achei melhor não arriscar a minha sorte. Talvez noutro dia.

On a not so sunny and photogenic afternoon, I decided to go to Monsanto (a very big park in Lisbon) and look for an old panoramic restaurant that's been said to have the best view over Lisbon, but, unfortunately, that didn't save it from being completely abandoned. After many turns and U-turns, I finally found it and took these photos. I wish I had the guts to go in, but after seeing a group of boys being kicked out from the site, I though I shouldn't play with my luck. Maybe another day.
