... they practically cut you off as they move back into the right-hand lane. Australian drivers could learn a lot from them. Anyway, back to the day's events. Aside from one wrong turn which sent us down a goat track deep in the suburbs of Coimbra, our friendly GPS lady delivered us as intended to the top of the hill where the university sits. There were quite a few busloads of tourists wandering around when we arrived, but we still managed to get a very good look ...

... to the cathedral. Now, cathedrals are supposed to be something special. This one was OK, but hardly memorable. Sadly, we got the feeling that Porto, especially around the areas where we were, with its tourists and its graffiti was somewhat disappointing.

I have to say i am very impressed with the scenery we are getting to see on our rides. Today was a fairly easy day, just one climb, We covered 90k, in 3:16 of riding time, with and average speed of 27.55. :) maxed out at 62 ... Myself and another rider Neil set out about 15 minutes before everyone else (Leslie and Ann hoped a ride to the summit of today's climb) . Neil and I thought we would get caught before the summit, and I was, he got an Ego Boost when we saw the ...

... dish and even turned down the chance of a dessert. Mary was smarter, confining herself to soup and an entree of the local specialty, a type of chorizo sausage. We retired to bed at around 10pm, tired but well satisfied. There is a footnote to this story. Late in the day, when he was unpacking, Brian found the missing train tickets. He had printed them off after all, but they had somehow become detached from the booking confirmation. All that anguish for ...
