NATO summit

This weekend Lisbon is going to held NATO summit.  It is estimated that three thousand foreigners will visit Lisbon during these days.  One third of these people are Obama's people.  Twenty eight nations head will come to Lisbon and one of them the Mongolian president Ts.Elbegdorj.
Security is getting very tight around Lisbon and Oeiras area, where the NATO's headquarter.  This afternoon many helicopters circled around my house and I saw some police with metal detectors next to a shopping centre near NATO.

Anti-NATO demonstration will be on Saturday 20 November at Lisbon's main avenue.


According to Destak, Portugal is the only country pays to NATO to having its headquarter.  It costs to the Portuguese government 600,000 euros per year.  I thought it should be other way around.
