I did some writing in the municipal library here in Lisbon today, up in the Bica neighborhood. It's just a small library, but with a very nice view. This is looking out the window towards the river:
It's hard to tell from the photo but the street below is quite steep. There's actually a funicular running up and down it, which is a favorite of the tourists here. I'm in Lisbon only through the weekend and then it is off to Porto and then Barcelona. I'll try to post more photos as I go.
