Pumpkin Bar Lisbon

Lisbon's thousands of neighborhood bars – boteco – like bars anywhere, often strive to differentiate themselves from others. This little bar located not far from the Museo da Marioneta on Rua da Esperan├ža stopped me in my tracks with nothing more unique than a massive pumpkin - or, abobora, on the obviously very sturdy glass cabinet.

A wonderful symbol of autumn hospitality, this scene summed up the color and occasional quirkiness of Lisbon and its culture.
