Lisbon, Portugal is the San Francisco of Europe. From the bridge that is nearly identical to the Golden Gate to the many hills throughout the city, Lisbon gave me a little taste of the West Coast in Europe. The city is also a Crayola box of color. Buildings were painted unabashed pinks and sunshine yellows. Others were tiled with intricate designs of porcelain blue and white, among others that were definitely covered in white and Macaroni and Cheese tiles. The culture was just as vivid as the buildings’ facades. They were eager to show off their city to visitors on bumpy tuk tuk rides during the day, and the sound of fado filled the streets at night. Lisbon was definitely a place that Tickle[d] Me Pink.
