Lisbon – Old City Charm

If as a Kenyan you want to understand the amount of influence the Portuguese had on Mombasa look no further than Lisbon. The narrow streets, The tiny restaurants, Grafitti, Medieval neighborhood, the Tuk Tuks!! You feel like you are in Lamu! Katikati. Interestingly, Lisbon also comes to life at night just like Mombasa! Lisbon is that city that is characteristic of Old City Charm. It’s where one of the world’s biggest explorer Vasco Da Gama embarked on his exploration journey through Africa all the way to Goa India by Sea. The point of his departure is right in front of the Lisbon Square. All the history you learnt in school really starts to make sense. Some say the fiction character Sinbad is based on his story. Theres a bar/club concept that we found quite fascinating here. They have several of them located in one high rise building; whereby on each floor they play different genres of music and serve different menus – so you just go to the one that has the music or meal of your choice . Or just hop all over. Shopping is also big in Lisbon and you dont wanna guess what else we found in the market – Mutura. Really, Lisbon is just little Mombasa. Its that city that if your touring around, you pass by on your way to some place else. My 2 cents.
