How do you say 'spring break' in Portuguese?

Guess what? I am in Portugal!

This spring break I am participating in the European Workshop for Waterfront Urban Design. I am excited to be back in Lisbon and to contribute to this new project.

More posts on EWWUD to follow, 
but first I want to tell you about my journey:
car parked
bart ride
air train

St. Patrick's Day Flash Mob at SFO
"Tonight's going to be a good night"
Too bad I was stuck in line...

Terminal 2 seems to have had a makeover, but I have never seen an airport yoga room in any airport but San Francisco's...

 I found the time for an airport Guinness:

The flight to New York seemed longer than the flight from Nyc to London... 

My St. Patrick's Day drinking situation seemed pretty bleak in JFK:
Stefon says, "New York's hottest club is Drink."
Just kidding.

I haven't been to New York since spring break 2002 when I was a senior in college visiting Josh and Jeannette! 

I need to come back for reals sometime soon.

This Irish pub was out of Guinness on St. Patrick's Day.
That's what I call bad planning.

This bar was also out of Guinness.

Luckily I found one at a steakhouse.
I am not sure whether it was:
New York inflation
+Steakhouse inflation
+St. Patrick's Day inflation
+Price rising to meet a limited airport supply of Guinness
Or all of the above, but this Guinness cost $9.70!
I think it was worth it, but it cured me of my desire to drink more at Heathrow...

Stay tuned for more Portuguese spring break waterfront news! 

Live from beautiful Lisbon
