Porto, some notes

Hello, everyone.

It's been a little while since the pilgrimage was the subject of a post, so I'll start by reminding y'all that the last post was on the little village of Grijo, just outside of Porto.

One of the days that we encountered Fatima hiking pilgrims was on the way from Grijo into Porto. We made sure to tell them about the albergue in Grijo!

The River Douro, a busy waterway even though we weren't close to the port. Left side, Vila do Gaia, right side, Oporto.

Cute little cable cars let you ride down and back up the hill in comfort.

Diorama of the Marchas de Sao Joao. This was in the courtyard of a former convent that had been founded as a foundling home.
