Saturday Photo: Looking Forward, Looking Back in Lisbon

January is the month named after Janus, the Roman god who looked foward and back at the same time. We're already more than half way through this January, but I'm think about both past adventures and dreaming about ones to come.

My last big trip was to Lisbon in 2009, and the picture to the left I think captures a bit of the multi-layered time scheme of that lovely city. The reflection is of buildings from the middle of the 19th century, while the windows are in a building that probablyl dates from 100 years later. I'd love to go back and wander around some more: Lisbon seemed to combine many of the best aspects of Paris with a setting much like San Francisco's.
