... over the tree-tops. Vehicle lights were switched on and sunglasses taken off as people made their way home on the busy road network. In the distance, I could see a big city. As we came closer, I could see a pretty line of flowers along the roadside, and flourishing vegetation forming a hedge-like row behind the flowers. A wooden sign had five carefully carved letters on its face saying 'Viseu'.
I punched the air in excitement; we were here!
