It was so interesting to hear Igor talk about his own district in Lisbon and say hello to his own neighbours. You can tell he loves his city and that shows in his talk. I am so pleased how nicely he talks about the seniors- he loves each one. I really liked the pictures of the seniors in front of their homes. It was fun to hear about the special drinks and go into the music store. thank you for the excellent tour. Dianne C. from Toronto Canada.
