Eventually we reached a cloverleaf interchange and curved north onto the IP7. Soon after that, we came to a toll plaza, using some form of E-ZPass to get through. From there, we passed Lisbon's version of Christ the Redeemer, then went up onto the 25 de Abril Bridge. And let me tell you, even though it was dark, the view of Lisbon was incredible.
|Of course, it was nighttime, so the pictures were terrible.|
|Here's another one.|
This street was highway-esque until it became Av. Berna. Now it was a local street lined with apartments and businesses. We passed the park containing the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, then later on we had a stop at the Campo Pequeno Metro station. We went by a cool circular building and a huge bank, then around a rotary. This was Areeiro Station, with a simple shelter for the bus stop. The trip had only taken about 45 minutes, and it was amazing. If you're staying in the northern part of Lisbon and you want to go to the beach, the 161 is a must.
