Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends

Place: Lisbon, Nations Park, Portugal

Theme: Nations Park / Blue Hour (I) 8:55pm
To see: map view

Mini TE meeting
In June, Aires (AiresSantos), Goncalo (Bluejeans) and me did a small meeting in the Nations Park to take a coffee and some pictures.
This is a view of the “Vasco da Gama” shopping in Nations’s Park at Lisbon, in the blue hour.
We can see the flags of all countries of the world, in the right side of the photo.
This picture was taken at "Parque das Nações" - a pleasent place in the city. Nations Park, located in the orient zone of the City of Lisbon.
Parque das Nações - English: Nations' Park, is a leisure, commercial and residential area in Lisbon, Portugal. It covers an extensive area in northeastern Lisbon next to the Tagus estuary, formerly used for mainly industrial purposes.
The area underwent a tremendous transformation in the 1990s when it was chosen as the location for the Expo '98 World Exhibition. After the exhibition, the area got its current name (although it is not uncommon for the Portuguese to still refer to it as "Expo"), and more transformations occurred such as the new Vasco da Gama shopping mall, the Lisbon's International Fair complex, hotels and many new office and residential buildings. Many attractions built for the Expo '98 remained and keep drawing visitors, such as the Oceanarium, one of the world's biggest aquariums./font>

I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends
