Lisbon. My apartment is located in an avenue with rush-hour traffic, noise and people passing on the street! This is an avenue
not far from one of the main entrances of the city. The avenue is well-known for the headquarters of the Portuguese bank Caixa
Geral de Depósitos: a huge building with more than 4,000 employees. This avenue is under a sky with heavy air traffic. The planes
are approaching the Lisbon airport for landing in an interval of three, five minutes especially at the end of afternoon. I usually can
see them from my balcony. Campo Pequeno square is two minutes walking from here. There is a soccer field with people playing.
Now the avenue, the streets, the square and the sky are emptied.
