Everyday life in Lisbon, Part 1: The Stairs

Posted by sue on September 24th, 2007

We live in a neighborhood in Lisbon called Mouraria, close to a nicer area called Graça. In Graça, there are grocery stores, cafés, banks, even an IKEA-like furniture store called Moviflor, so it’s where we conduct most of our everyday business.

Unfortunately, to get there, we must walk up these stairs:

And these stairs:

And these:

AND these!

145 steps in all. When we bought our bed, we carried it down all these stairs (In two trips– mattress, then frame). When we do our food shopping every couple of days, we haul ourselves up the stairs, and all our groceries back down. All part of the healthy European lifestyle, we tell ourselves!

    Doesn’t look terribly handicapped accessible.

    True, but we often see little old ladies with canes who do walk up these stairs, however slowly.

    That’s why you guys are looking so buff. Where did the “Butter Knife Incident” take place?

    We don’t talk about that. (a different set of stairs heading down the hill)
