Grijo to Porto

9/23 – 10 miles to Porto, 2nd largest city in Portugal, and full of neat stuff to see. After only getting about 5 hours of sleep, thanks to the mosquitoes, I was feeling a little rocky this morning, but the sun promised to come out today, so off we went.

Everything was a little soggy, but the old roads were passable, and soon we were approaching the city: image.

I loved seeing the ruins covered in morning glories!

Our hotel is right in the center of the city, near the Torre Clerico:

We get free espresso in the morning, and free port wine all day long. Too bad I don’t drink wine!

We walked a little as the sun was setting:

…and visited the world’s most beautiful bookshop, the Lello Livraria:

Tomorrow, we’ll rest and see the city!
