Lisbon Weekly Photo

The idea came up after visiting several “DailyPhoto” sites, particularly the one from Paris, which is my other favorite city. Since LisbonDailyPhoto was getting posts very irregularly, I decided to create this place. Although my skills and my Exilim Z110 are very limited, I hope to deserve your visit. Please leave your comments (any comments) so I can improve.

Chapitô

Chapitô is a cultural association that promotes performing arts like circus, animation, dance, multimedia, etc. Established in 1981, it grew and developed the space, the company and it's activities. It integrates a terrace, a restaurant, a library and a documentation center. According to Teresa Ricou, the President, “Chapitô is a box big enough to get us all, anchored in the solidarity of the party, and small enough to house each of us.”


I only know the restaurant and the terrace but I can assure it’s one the best places in town to spend a few hours enjoying a drink and a chat with friends. Besides, it has the most sympathetic waitresses in town (and the prettiest too, lol).

The fabolous view from the inside bar

Hi Paul,
Thanks a lot for your comment. To be honest, the exposure times are really Exilim's responsability, I just set up the timer for 2 seconds and waited.
Ops! How could I forgot that? lol
