Margarida's cards

Margarida is a postcrosser and she also likes to share her cards in her blog. I've recently traded with her and more cards will go on her way soon.

 On this watercolor there's 2 of Lisbon attactions, the cathedrak and tram 28.  
Electrico 28 (tram 28) is the vintage yellow tram that plies various routes in Lisbon. It goes through all over the city center, crossing many touristic attractions, while navigating along winding and very narrow streets to town up at sea level.
The tram is a hop-on, hop-off service and there are more than 30 stops you can choose from. The starting point, however, is downtown in Praca Martim Moniz and the end is uptown in Campo de Ourique (Prazeres).
Because Tram 28 is reasonably cheap and very popular, a lot of people ride it. So it’s better if you can wait for a time when there are fewer people on board, so you can truly relax and enjoy the sceneries. - in:  http://www.top10portugal.com/tram-28-lisbon

The lighthouse is located on the south side of the entrance to the Aveiro lagoon, in Barra, the seaside neighborhood of Aveiro. The location is on a barrier beach, exposed to Atlantic Ocean storms.
The lighthouse was built between 1885 and 1893. - in: wikipedia
