My last few days in Portugal flew by quickly. I visited a few of the sites and my host cooked me an amazing meal. There was an MTV art battle with national graphic artists near his house. They were asked to create a design with the MTV toy logo and were competing side by side, against the clock. This is a live art competition and compete in front of a live audience.
Throughout my blog, I have photographed graffiti, local artists and lots of street art. I had the opportunity to witness a very cool, live art competition in the streets near Chiado.
|The meal he made was incedible. He made me some clams with garlic, olive oil, cilantro and some other spices. Delicious.|
|He made me a flavorful rice with shrimp, crab and other seafood.|
|After dinner, we strolled down the street to see the famous Bairro Alto area. |

|We visited the national tile museum in Lisbon|
|This museum houses over 5 centuries of the production, history and different forms of decorative ceramic tiles (Azulejos)|
You will not find a collection this extensive anywhere in the entire world.
