Trip to Coimbra and Lisbon, Portugal, October 2004

Jim by the bridge over Coimbra's river, with the town and university behind

Our hotel in Coimbra, very nice.

At the University of Coimbra, which claims to be older than Bologna.
It's very pretty but some deferred maintenance issues exist.

At an amazing organ concert at the university's chapel.

Helen Ross and Lawrence Ward giving the opening lecture at the
"Fechner Day 2004" conference (aka the International Society
for Psychophysics)

Mary in downtown Lisbon.  Nice visual illusion of depth in the mosaic.

On the main drag of Lisbon, just around the corner from our hotel.

Enjoying a Portugese brew in Lisbon

West of Lisbon a few miles, in Belm (Portugese for Bethlehem)

At a pastry shop in Belm, where they make Lisbon's traditional sweet

Back in Lisbon, a pretty city built on some major hills.

At the Palcio Nacional de Pena, 2 miles south of Sintra (which is
a beautiful spot in its own right, hilly and luscious)

A lovely restaurant, La Villa, in Estoril, overlooking the Atlantic

Mary at a park right behind our hotel.
