The Vibrant City of Porto, Portugal
We're no longer in a place where it's sweater weather. It's hot, it's sunny, it's August in Porto, Portugal.
We decided to take a hop on hop off tour on a double decker bus, but instead of hopping off, we stayed on with the rest of the passengers for almost the whole loop. With soft British narration we passed old churches covered with painted tiles, buildings with wrought iron balconies, and lush palm trees along the seaside promenade. The tide was in and the waves splashed against the rocks sending a mighty spray into the air. We learned that sometimes the passengers on the bus are splashed too.
