I was in contact with Rita Caré, who organized a meeting of Urban Sketchers Portugal at Museu do Carmo in the afternoon with whoever showed up to sketch.
She was also kind enough to forward my contact to all the members, asking if people would have time to meet me during my stay in Lisbon.
That is how I met Teresa Ruivo, with whom I spent the morning of that day sketching around Praça do Comércio / Terreiro do Paço.

|The waiters were very nice, too|

|Largo de Camões is one of my favourite places in Lisbon|
I was told that the roof fell during the earthquake of 1755 and was never rebuilt. Today it is used as an archaeological museum and popular meeting place for Urban Sketchers.
|Every church should have a blue sky for a roof|

It was time to go back home to reality and finish my Portuguese adventures of 2015 with a plane sketch, how else?
