While walking through the winding streets of Alfama to Graca and Santa Clara, this pattern-on-pattern scene caught my eye.  I couldn't stop looking up the entire time we were in Lisbon.  These stunning azulejos (hand painted, tin-glazed ceramic tiles) adorn virtually every building, from churches and train stations to ordinary homes... and the hanging laundry only adds to the charm.
