Joana Vasconcelo's exibithion at Palácio Nacional da Ajuda

Started today and its simple genius, her mix of pop-art and surrealism in the incredible setting of Lisbon's grandest palace with a magnificent view over the city and river. It will be on for half a year.

Not to be missed by anyone in Lisbon at the next six months!!!

Shoes and cooking! Two of my favourite things!

Any recommendations for somewhere in the area of the gallery for lunch? Or a late afternoon drink? (Another of my favourite things.... eating and drinking!)

The palace is a bit off the centre (north of Belém) think there is a free bus from there to the palace, just used the car, so although there are quite a few restaurants in the area none I know of and like well enough to recommend. Did saw the museum shop didn't see a coffee shop but they must have one.
