Curiosity got the better of me. Each tile seemed to tell a story through colour, pattern and aged cracks. I couldn't help but stop to witness the beauty of the tiles around Lisbon. OK, so the next two photos are from Sintra - approximately 30 minutes away from Lisbon by car. Above is at 'Avenida' underground stop. Yes, I was actually wearing clothes.
