Nearly two weeks after leaving San Francisco for New York, then Lisbon, then Porto, Lisbon again, Istanbul, and New York again, I am home, and sleeping in my own bed has never felt so good. The chilly San Francisco summer has never felt so good either, after several days of temperatures that closed in on 100 degrees farenheit, with brief but violent thunderstorms providing the only break from the  heat.

Pictures and full trip reports to come, but for now, a picture of the Convento da Ordem do Carmo, or Carmo Convent, a medieval convent in Lisbon’s Chiado neighborhood that was half-ruined in the great earthquake of 1755 and whose partially crumbled shell now houses an archaeological museum. More to come.
