The Gate to Belem Tower

On our trip to Portugal. My daughter and I waited on a line for almost an hour, just to get into Belem through the gate. Through the rain drops, the chatter from the queue and the wonderment of what lies inside.

Well this tower did not disappoint. The old cannons, the intricacies of the building. But most of all, the 97 steps that we climbed to get to the top. At my age and not so great health, I was determined to get to the top.

Let me tell you, I finished on my hands and knees to behold a panoramic sight of Lisbon.
