Azulejos

Hello from Lisbon airport, where I am waiting for my flight back to London… The last days I spent in this beautiful city by the sea, wandering around its narrow streets, up and down its many hills…

Covering walls with «Azulejos», which is how these colored tiles are called has a long tradition in Lisbon. The museum of Azulejos, where an amazing panoramic view of Lisbon made by blue and white tiles is on display, gave me a lot of ideas for the pottery course I am starting soon.

Have a great start into the week and never stop discovering!
