Photo Story: Lisbon, Portugal

Pics of Portugal: Praca do Comercio from baloon

I’ve been twice to Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal. Only twice, I would say, stressing on “only”… because it is such a beautiful city with a bohemian atmosphere with a pretty relaxed atmosphere (too relaxed would say IMF and World Bank) and a great party vibe. But, let’s have a photo-walk through this special city.
