The Hungry Brain gives off a bit of a Malcolm Gladwell vibe, with its cutesy name and pop-neuroscience style. Stephan Guyenet is no Gladwell-style dilettante.
Rossio train station Other sites of Interest: We were recommended the Ajuda National Palace by a local. Best Miradouros Viewpoints in Lisbon.

My intention was to do a whole post on the best Miradouros in Lisbon. The single best reason to see it are for the views. It is not technically a miradouro but it has some of our favorite views in Lisbon. Make sure to pay to go up to the top deck I think it was 1.
Miradouro da Senhora do Monte I thought that the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte had nice views over the center of town looking towards the river. Miradouro de Santa Luzia One of the most famous, iconic viewpoints in Lisbon.
I came here 25 years ago and sat down on a bench alone. It epitomized Lisbon for me. Below we saw construction and cranes everywhere. Miradouro das Portas do Sol A few minutes walk from the above mentioned Santa Luzia miradouro, this lookout lacks in atmosphere but actually has better views.
Miradouro Jardim do Torel Getting up here is best done taking the Lavra elevator above. A 5 minute ride will take you up the hill from where it is a 3 minute walk to the Jardim do Torel which is a pretty little park. I enjoyed it for the views of incoming planes. This page locates most of the Miradouros for you.
I found it useful. Miradouro de Santa Caterina which everyone says is the place to see sunsets.

We found out that most of the building including the apartment upstairs was rented out by their owners as Airbnb apartments. Neighboring buildings also seemed to be full of Airbnb apartments. This was our first experience with it.
The first photo top left is what you see featured prominently in the Airbnb ad.The logistics become extremely difficult. When my third was born, my second was just over two. And he was an “explorer.” I had to preplan what to do for when the toddler bolted when I was carrying approximately 45 pounds of baby seat plus 20 pounds of diaper bag.
We spent the month of August in alphabetnyc.com me, it was a return to a city that I had visited 25 years ago. Lisbon is a very popular place these days, attracting tourists with its beautiful architecture, tiled streets, sunny days (it is known as the sunshine capital), historic sites, and cuisine.
F or participants in a sport where peeling out at the top of a rapid almost inevitably results in arriving at the bottom, kayakers seem surprisingly indifferent to matters of style. Things can go pretty badly awry, and onlookers might roll their eyes at a particularly bad line, but someone would have to be radically over his head before anyone would be likely to say anything about it.
Ah, but super-human AI is not the only way Moloch can bring our demise. How many such dangers can your global monarch identify in time? EMs, nanotechnology, memetic contamination, and all the other unknown ways we’re running to the bottom. January Have you ever seen an old photo of yourself and been embarrassed at the way you looked?
Did we actually dress like that? We did. And we had no idea how silly we looked. In my high school yearbook there is a note from a girl who wrote, "I like you even though you are very mean." I do not remember the girl who wrote this note.
