Cascais – Portugal

Category:Portugal Tags : 

This morning, we all woke early and went to the bus station, where we caught a bus to the nearby town of Cascais. This had some lovely beaches, and we all sunbathed for a while.

I have never sunbathed before. It seems you just take off all your clothes and sit around waiting for your skin to turn brown. I think that most of the people around me were doing it wrong, as they were nearly all a bright pink colour. Perhaps they were like me, and new to sunbathing. As I am already brown, I just sat in the sun, waiting for the girls to get hungry… 

Later, we went to a restaurant and ate some lovely food. I must say that, apart from the pretty houses, Portuguese food is almost the nicest I have ever tasted. It has many more flavours than Georgian and Armenian food, although I love some of that too!

When it was getting late, we caught the bus back to Lisbon. On the way, Sopi told me that we would be flying again tomorrow. We are going to somewhere called Porto.

The Museum of Modern Art – Lisbon

Category:Portugal Tags : 

As they say, 'I don't know art, but I know what I like.'

I must be honest. I did not like any of it. There were no pictures of famous places or people, no statues of Queens and Kings, and not even an ice cream shop! All I saw were pictures of legs, some more legs, a few legs, and legs. I do not understand these pictures at all.

In the middle of one room was a brightly coloured… thing. Yes, the colours were pretty, but I have NO IDEA what I was looking at!

The girls liked everything, but I am a simple little bear and I did not enjoy it at all!

Sorry Sopi!

Lisbon – Portugal

Category:Portugal Tags : 

Wow - I am on the move again! I have had a lovely summer in Tbilisi with David, but it is time to move on again and try to find my way home. David said that I can come back whenever I wish, and if I do not find my owner, I certainly will.

I have travelled to a lovely country called Portugal with my Georgian friend, Sopi. So far, we have only been here for one day, but already we have had some adventures:

I have flown for many kilometres from Georgia to Turkey, where we waited for a long time to catch another plane to Portugal.

Once we arrived, and had put our cases in the hotel, we went for a little walk around Lisbon (it is the capital). We saw many interesting statues of people I have never heard of. Sopi said that one statue looked a lot like Stalin. I also did not know who he was, but I did not say anything…

After this, we took a ride on a lovely yellow tram. That was a lot of fun.

However, as always, my favourite part was when we had something to eat. I like Portuguese food a LOT.
