Susanne Krejsa MacManus' five finger excercise
8/2021: “Bliss” in Lisbon
Now, you’re sure to laugh at me, but even when just packing my suitcase in Vienna, I feel homesick. I bravely overcome it, and I like to travel – a lot. To Lisbon, for example. There’s always something new to discover. At least on the map … actually finding one’s way there is another question. It took us three attempts to finally locate Rua Marechal Saldanha 1 in the Santa Catarina district, actually very close to our Airbnb apartment and easy to reach with the famous no. 28 yellow tram.
One ought to just be able to read maps ;-)
A glance at the drinks menu brings the first surprise: Antidote or LSD? Antivirus or Anticoagulant? The latter, for example, comes in a dose of 105 millilitres and contains Żubrówka vodka and ginger beer as active substances and then coriander, celery and sliced ginger to boot.
"Our laboratory's medicines are subject to prescription. In case of doubt, consult your waiter/waitress or bartender."
Oh, after all that, I’ve now completely forgotten to tell you about our exciting visit to the Health and Pharmacy Museum.
