This morning I found myself across the street from the Calouste Gulbenkian museum. Figuring the museum would open at 1000 I almost went past when I noticed that the garden gates were open. I walked in and spent a while discovering this slightly overgrown park. It was cool under the canopies of huge trees. There was bamboo, and stone steps that led across water, and lots of benches hidden behind bushes. Lovely.
BTW, if you want to see any of the images larger just right-click or control-click on that one and select open image in new tab.
very nice surprise – indeed
