Porto – Day 2
So I had a list that if completed would mean 8 miles walking up and down the giant hill that is Porto. It’s a beautiful city, but damn the hill is a big one.
I started at Livraria Lello a beautiful bookstore famous for being where JK Rowling wrote the first couple chapters of Harry Potter. Unfortunately now it’s a 40 minute wait to buy a $5 ticket, to get in line to get into a packed bookstore. So I took this picture and moved on.
The city has a number of parks and gardens, I found the Crystal Palace Gardens to be amazing. even if I never found the palace. I took a lovely break in the shade there with a cup of raspberry sherbet.
Spent the rest of the day locating churches, vistas and a little fejoada, brazillian black bean stew. It was a wonderful day, tomorrow off to Aveiro.
