A walk down a posh street with a stop for terrific pastry at a pastelaria
The wonderful E28 that took me there and back
The Cemitério dos Prazeres. Deserted and a bit scary
Feral cats at the cemetery entrance
The fashion of Felipe Oliviera Baptista in the design Museum. Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to photograph anything from the history of 20th C design in the first floor exhibit. I really liked that one.

|Waiting for the train to Porto in Lisbon station
|a meal in a Porto caf after a day of travel
|a transplanted Ukrainian trumpetist busking in the centre of Porto.
|A strange fountain with a black cube and vast outdoor seating for a cafe beside the river
The same fountain from a different viewpoint to show the buildings behind it.
|Buildings piled up the hills like lego.
|I bought most of my souvenirs in the stalls along the water's edge.
|The car of the funicular to climb one of the city's steep hills
|Looking up the hill from inside the funicular
|Inside the tram. Unlike Lisbon, Porto's trams are not part of the city's transit system.
|The trams are moving museum pieces with short circuits for 2.50 Euros.
|Lovely fresh coconut sweet after a lunch of fried fish sandwich and fresh orange juice.
|Porto is on the River Douro.
|A riverside walk
|The day is winding down and my legs are tired. Heading back to the hotel.
