Porto Vibes

Porto was a bonding experience, to say the least. Definitely worth the extensive hours of stressful bus travel  (and ultimately charter bus) to get there and back, and as a result I feel closer to the group of 23 Duke in Madrid students that went along with us! It's a really cool city, with so many layers and hills winding down to a huge river. We took a boat ride down the river for a bit on Saturday afternoon, had a port wine and cheese tasting (the cheese was excellent, but I don't know that port wine is my fave), and had some lovely meals at nice restaurants! The buildings there are beautiful, with artisan ceramic tiles covering nearly half of them. It's a rugged city, not nearly as polished as Madrid, but it's got so much character. Even though it looked like I wasn't going to make it on Friday night with all the transportation complications, I'm so glad I went to Porto and I'm so happy to be even closer with all the people who were there with me!
