It rained hard through the night and the morning started out
drizzly and misty in this very green part of Portugal in a valley on the border
between the Minho and Tras-Os-Montes regions of the country. I found myself
about a day ahead of my tentative trip plan, so decided to add a day in
Tras-Os-Montes province in northeastern Portugal to my drive itinerary. Since I

... destination for tonight. As we enter the village after what seems an interminable amount of bitumen from the approach to the massive dam and on around the dam to this village, we notice the most beautiful derelict buildings. A photographers heaven!
