So Marc's we got invited to go swimming at my friend's boyfriend's house, and I was pretty impressed by the sound system in her boyfriend's car.

 and ferrets
 
 Dreaded dog
 
 If you look closely, not only is the driver napping in the driver's seat, but there's also a man napping underneath the truck right behind the wheels!!  better not back up!!
 
 driving into Lisbon
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Cousins
 
 We made some Spanish ERASMUS students from Madrid and other places studying abroad in Lisbon.  All the Spaniards were in the street after Spain beat Italy in the Eurocup.
 
 My new friend.
 
 This is the spaniard that initiated contact with us after hearing us loud americans in the street.  He heard us speaking english and immediately wanted us to spend the evening with them.

 Lisbon (and maybe even Portugal in general) is known for its tiled buildings.

 This amazing little terrace bar place with an amazing view that we stopped and had a cool drink at.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Cool monastary with arches in the back ground, right next to the viewing platform
 
 
 
 I love this picture.  Starrett was so happy!!
 
 
 
 Pretty flowers
 
 We unfortunately left the day before one of their Saint's day fiestas, but we saw all the decorations for it.
 
 
 
 
 
 Rio and SF in the same view!!
 
 
 
 
 
 Don't know those guys, but thought that was a cool picture

 Faro!!  Amy and I bought our gear for Morocco.  We've heard that you're meant to be covered from head to toe, so we're gonna take it seriously. 
 
 Stunning, I know.  I actually bought that headband to go with my halloween costume!

 I took this pic because of the cool light and shadow of his hands and cards on his shirt, but it actually turned out to be a pretty good pic of Starrett!!
 
 Sunset!
 
 I'm really glad that the volunteer fire dept has little pedal bike things to race to when there's a fire...seriously what do they do with these??
