This is the train station in Portugal. Honey, grab yourself a Starbucks Vente Mocha, and settle in for the trip.

Life is like a mountain railroad,
with an engineer that’s brave;
We must make the run successful,
from the cradle to the grave;
Watch the curves, the fills,the tunnels;
never falter, never quail;
Keep your hand upon the throttle,
and your eye upon the rail. words from an old railroad song on public domain
