“You’re not a museum person, are you?” My friend looked at me accusingly. We had spent a few days in Lisbon, walking around Portugal’s capital, drinking sweet port wine and the little beers they call “Minis”, taking day trips to the sea and castles around, but never once setting foot inside a museum.
