Festa na rua!

Street party!  

With three holidays this week, Lisbon is in the most elated, electrified state you will see her in all year.  The scent of grilled sardines waifs in the air, every plaza in town is colorfully decorated, and there are beer stands at every finger tip.  Large speakers have been mounted on building facades in prep for the big monster party which is tomorrow evening, the eve of Santo Antonio.  

Last night we ventured out mid afternoon for a ‘tasca’ crawl, a bar crawl of sorts, with a live band and lots of spirit.

Check out these beautiful pics on Camilla’s site.  Go to Galleries/Arraial 2009/Day 4.
