Just one or two of my snaps from Lisbon so far. What an amazing (and hilly) city with so much to do. I'll report back when I get home - have so much to tell you!
Time for a wee break for the little one after a busy new year so far. Am off to Lisbon in Portugal for a city break. Thanks for all the suggestions of where to visit on the trip from your memories. Looks like the beaches, the aquarium and the trams and trains are highlights. Started this trip in the lounge at Manchester Airport. Decided to go for it when booking the parking (late last night, organised as ever). It is funny - like a hospital ward with chairs rather than beds (very nice, but lacking the atmosphere of watching people squabbling at the airport (you know I'm a nosy people watcher). I'd love a job in here in the lounge on 'the desk'. Two smart ladies, sitting at computers looking very important - it's all very theatrical. Airports are very funny, aren't they :)
Right, off to learn a few Portugese phrases (another language to try and master the basics of ha ha). No doubt, first genius stroke when arriving will be saying goodbye to a taxi driver in Spanish ;)
Will be back at TJC on Tuesday 5th March at 6pm. Lots of news coming soon for my shows there.
I'll post one or two pics while I'm away. See you soon :)
Fantastic to receive a parcel from a viewer in Bournemouth who saw that the cowpig (see videos section) is out there in the form of a torch. Again, a cow's body and a piggy's nose. Genius - I love it. I'm still badgering TJC's buyers to get more of the charm that started the craze. Watch this space. Derek x
