Lagos and Lisbon
I gathered both the apartment shots here instead of putting them in the narative. The main reason is that I took so many!
The first 4 are the Lagos kitchen. First looking toward the balcony and then looking toward the interior.
Below is the pantry at the end of the kitchen. It was well stocked though I never ate in the apartment except breakfast and late night snack.
The refrigerator is in its own alcove, leading from the kitchen to the front hall.
Below is the front door leading to the interior of the apartment house. I was on the 4th floor, counting the entrance as floor 1.
Here we are looking from the front all toward the kitchen. You can see the table by the door where I always put my keys!!!
Below I am in the livingroom. This was my main table where I wrote emails in the morning.
Then looking toward the balcony. Note the TV on the right.
Now looking the other way, back at the work table and the front hall.
Below is where I sit and watch the TV, usually the normal public TV shows like Miss Marple and Hercule Perot.
This is the drying rack where my sweat soaked riding cloths go as soon as I come in. I did an occational laundry in the kitchen sink and one big laundry in the machines in the super market below my appartment.
Below shows the front hall again, this time looking away from the kitchen, toward the bathroom. Note the bike is against the wall on the right and the couch on the left is used for laying out cloths.
The two shots below are of my bedroom. The first looking toward the balcony and the second looking back toward the hall. There is another bedroom in the apartment but it was locked.
The hall from outside the bedroom, looking back toward the kitchen. Now you can see where the bike lives at night.
And the bathroom. The shower was fine. As with most, it took a little getting used to but always had good hot water. Shampoo and body soap were provided.
Below I am trying to show you the 4 sided key! It had a little "bump" on it that told you which of the 4 sides should be "up". One day I thought for sure I had locked myself out as I put the key into the lock with the "bump" not on top and it would not turn!
And finally you have the front of the apartment building and the SPAR super market in the basement.
OK, on to Lisbon. This is a one bedroom apartment.
The bed room.
The living room.
Looking back across the livingroom toward the bedroom and bathroom.
The TV I could not get to work. Rule number 1, make the host go outside with you and have you operate the keys to get back in and do the same with the TV.
The kitchen is just an alcove off the living room. I'm using every piece of furniture to get my things organized for the repack!
