Finally got a chance to walk, eat and drink around Lisbon after putting the motorbike out to pasture in Lagoinha (40 km out of Lisbon). Thanks again to Heli for everything and Tani for lending me the Moto.
Moto Day 23 Aracena to Lisbon, well close (300 km)
Started out mid morning from Aracena grabbing some oil and last cheap gas in Spain. C5R6T3V7.
|Last looks back to Spain|
Serpa to Moura - Sweet little side road to catch some lakes. C7R6T3/5V6. Narrow roads.
|European RV, tiny.|
|Getting some water views near Barragem de Alqueva|

Barragem de Alqueva, some big ass Dam, Love it!
|Dammed water side|
|Viana do Alentejo|
|Planned and Permitted Graffiti|
Viana do Alentejo to Lagoinha was basically straight riding with a few 90 degrees to freak me out.
C2-9R6T3V5. Lots of small towns which is the price you pay to avoid paying the pricey road tolls.
|Blow past that slow poke|
|with the odd curve|
|The old shovel picker at Lidl|
Back to Lagoinha and to return the moto to the spot I found it.
|Glad I marked that on my GPS before I left|
|Open the Castle Gate!|
|4355 km in 23 days, that's a lot of beer!|
|All tidied up|
|Done like a calf roping|
Now finally to relax at Casa de Heli and Neale.

Day 24-25, Lisbon for a couple of nights. When I arrived in August I had only 4 hrs in the Capital of Portugal, so it was necessary to return and have a few nights there. Check it out...

|Walking down to the centre|
|Marques de Pombal|
|Where's the action?|
|Barrio Alto is the party zone...|
|Boom! People everywhere|
|Boom! Drug dealers everywhere!|
|Half a litre of beer for $1.50 CAD|
|When in Lisbon, go to the Docks...?|
Hanging at the Docks club by the water front with some locals I met Barrio Alto. $15 CAD drinks, isn't Portugal cheaper?? Didn't I just pay $1.50 for a half litre of beer??
|R and B all night|
Decided to walk the 4-5km back to the Hostel in order to really check out Lisbon in it's quiet time. Up and Down as Lisbon is full of hills if you didn't know.
|Always have to take a photo of this car|
|Lovely blue sky warming up|
|Yeah, it's a park!|
|Alright boys...you all have your |
shit bombing coordinates for the day
|Good morning Lisbon|
