Today had a mad scramble to get at least a million things done or sort of in order, for this Mom to take a little trip. Destination:Porto, Portugal, also called Oporto by some peoples, like the Swiss. This is one of the oldest continuous cities in the world, we hear, with immense amounts of history and historical significance, which one would never know if one didn't go to these off-the-beaten-track places. We decided we like it, in the brief time we have been here. I am tapping on an I-Pad, so won't write much, to avoid too many mistakes. Here are a few pictures.
Many buildings have tiles siding or painted tile decoration, especially in blues on white.
Interior of the train station. Historical paintings on tiles. Beautiful.
Close up of details.
Something that looks like a fortified church, which we have not visited yet.
Tiled buildings on a side street.
And more to come, D.v.
