Porto-sightseeing

 

These tourist boats, looking rather like over-sized gondolas, which ply up and down the river, are new since I was last in Porto and the result of a huge boost in tourism over the past ten years.

 

Ryanair exceeded themselves - two hours late out of Chania, arriving Manchester 01:50 a.m. this morning!

Well, good for them... I suppose. At least the boat is attractive!
Tom Wilson: Indeed - the Portuguese economy needs all the help it can get!

Have you managed a trip yet yourself, Tom?
Tom Wilson: Not yet, Lisl - next time, perhaps.
Some hardy tourists on it by the look of it Tom
Tom Wilson: Actually, it was lovely weather that day.

I loved Porto since visiting last September Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's an interesting city, Chad - but much spoiled by recent surge in tourism.
It is much like a gondola. Cool!
Tom Wilson: No doubt that was deliberate smile
Quite a nice boat to sail in isn't it.
Tom Wilson: Yes, looks quite nice for a trip up and down the river.
