Jean is in town, and we’re having a meetup this week.

Date: Apr 13th
Time: 1:30PM
Location: Largo do Carmo, Lisbon

The Plan

Subject to change, but I thought we could meet close to the hotel, walk around a bit (a mini photo walk), go by the wonderful pastéis de nata place close to Camões (my favorites, sorry Pastéis de Belém), through some of the cool streets around it (Bairro Alto area), all the way to Principe Real, where we could sit for a bit, have a beer (or something non-alcoholic) at the kiosk.

That would leave me close to kindergarten for tinyMovieStar pickup, and I can leave you when that time comes. You can then take the very short walk back to the hotel, or wherever you might feel like going.

It’s not a very long walk, no huge climbs either, and you’ll be able to get a feel for this special part of town, where I grew up, and where we still live. This is also where most of the sticker spotting happens, and I’m sure you’ll recognise some of the places from the photos I share on

If you have other plans, feel free to share them, of course. I just thought it could be a nice way to spend a couple of hours, instead of just sitting somewhere. What do you think?
