They often have art installations here but today I really noticed the bizarre decor.
Plastic noses covering the walls, along with hanging plates and other small ornaments with noses attached to them. They even have pictures of objects with small plastic noses and smiley faces drawn onto them.
The cafe serves delicious pastries and pancakes, as well as yummy savoury snacks such as bagels and sandwiches. Apart from great coffee, the carrot and apple juice is a good thing to try.
The decor is…interesting and the beautiful sunshine today made the experience all the more enjoyable as we could sit outside and soak up the rays.
All across the walls at the Lisbon airport metro stop, there are caricatures of famous Portuguese cultural figures.
When you think you’ve seen them all you carry on along a long corridor towards the airport and encounter a couple dozen more.
The figures range from painters and poets to architects and pilots. They are all drawn in the same style and each one has a small name tag beside it explaining the subject’s profession.
Lisbon’s metro and airport are squeaky clean and very modern, these quirky caricatures give it a comical feel, whilst adding a bit of cultural history to the spacious long corridors of the underground.
