We are less than 24 hours from getting off the ship. It looks like tomorrow we will be able to disembark by 10am at the latest. It isn't as bad as we thought it would be just sitting here instead of being out there. The views of Lisbon from the ship are incredible and it is nice to look out the window while we are in the gym and see Lisbon instead of ocean (although the ocean isn't a bad view either).
Last night I did the sunset yoga class and it was so wonderful. We had a beautiful sunset during the class and it was so calming and surreal to be looking at such beauty during class. The class is held on the forward top deck in front of the Glazer Lounge and there were about 30 or so people there.
Before yoga class we had a cultural pre-port lecture. This lecture was given by one of the faculty members Betsy Chunko who visited Lisbon for about 5 weeks. She gave us so much wonderful information about the city and its neighborhoods. She touched on the foods and drinks that we should definitely try and the must see sights as well as some hidden gems. She did and incredible job.
Our classes are going well and we are having a great time getting to know all of our students. When we disembark tomorrow we have 4 days in Lisbon. We will be returning to the ship every night to sleep FOR FREE, but it sounds like a lot of the students are staying in hostels. They are so adventurous!
