Afternoon Tagus River cruise

In Lisbon, we went for a cruise on the Tagus River, which we had met a month earlier at Toledo.

  Leaving from Praça do Comércio, we first went upstream, past the Cathedral. *
  The Costa Fortuna was still following us. *
  We went past modern architecture ... *
  and disused gasworks ... *
  until we reached the Vasco da Gama Bridge. †
  This was close to the site of the Lisbon Expo '98. *
 
  Then the boat turned around, and went back past Praça do Comércio. †
  We went under the 25 April Bridge ... *
  and past a concrete Christ ... †
  and the Monument of the Discoveries. *
 
  We got as far as the Belém Tower, then returned to Praça do Comércio. †

Return to Lisbon or go on to Portland.
