Lisbon by Tuk Tuk

We learned a lot about the #streetart that covers so many of Lisbon’s walls with famous artists such as Vihls, Obey, Shepard Fairey, and many many more. He showed us neighborhoods we wouldn’t have stumbled onto on our own like Bangladeshi Street and China Town. But the most incredible part of the whole trip was seeing Tiago interact with the city. He grew up here along with his 12 brothers, and you can tell by the number of people he knew on the street just how much he loves and interacts with his city. We would be driving by and then a bus would pass, and he’d be honking and waving because he knew a passenger on the street. We would stop and chat with old ladies on the corner that he made friends with long ago. And he wasn’t shy to chat up strangers too. A new construction site had gone up and he started asking about what they were doing, only to find out it was actually archeologists because a Muslim burial site had been discovered during the build of a new hotel. His contagious smile and next level energy had Lou and I buzzing for the rest of the day. Thank you Eco #TukTours and Tiago for such an incredible opportunity! Much love, Dana (& Lou) Ps if you want to try his restaurant it is Carapau de Corrida (restaurantecarapaudecorrida.pt) but if you’re vegan make sure to call ahead. They have one vegetarian option every day and some days like the day we were there you get lucky and it happens to be vegan too 🙂
