Hello Friends & Fellows of CDPB around the World!!! It's theme day again and I have chosen to post some Lisbon grafittis and mural paintings and tiles!!!... My favourite one is, evidently, Fernando Pessoa’s Grafitti at Chiado, Lisbon, but it is so difficult to choose only one... Hope I’ve made a good choice!...

You've made great choices - especially the tiles cos I posted tiles on Menton too! And worried I'd overstepped the rules. You have some very interesting murals in your city.
