    ... the waterfront promenade. A great place to sit for a drink and take in the view . We took a boat cruise along the Duoro for one hour, travelling under the many bridges which connect Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia on the other side. From here we had a great view of the hillside and the cable car and funiculars surrounding it. We had a lovely lunch right on the waterfront and enjoyed the sunshine. After lunch we took a tour of the Palácio da ...

    ... with a new green vegetable, the Portuguese call it turnip greens, looks a lot like spinach. Delicious and a welcome change from carrot and broccoli. Another attraction of Vinhas D'Alho was a Fado concert with dinner. If you are unfamiliar with Fado singing I suggest you Google it, but it is very much part of Portuguese life.

    ... still say that it was pretty good food. Then we slowly walked back to our hostel, stopping to look at souvenirs and take pictures. We napped for a little bit, and then went on a boat ride down the main river that cuts through the city. It was a cool sight, but the ride was really cold and windy. Then we walked back to the hostel, and on the way we got doner kebabs. I can't remember if I have talked about doner kebabs before, but it is so wonderful, and they should be a thing in ...

    ... see Porto and the Douro River from the plane, what a sight! We got off the plane and got our bags..again we were one of the first people to do this and was able to beat everyone in line. We might be just as good as the Amazing Race teams! We got a taxi and he took us to our hotel. The hotel owner was a very nice gentleman. He spoke broken English, but explained where everything was on the map. The room was extremely small. Definitely no Hilton with space to stretch ...

    I'm running a bit behind in my reports - we're already upriver on the Douro, docked on the Spanish side of the border. A lot has transpired here in the past few days as we've sailed through the scenic Douro River Valley. Scott and I agree that this is the most scenic of the cruises we offer, with the possible exception of the Three Gorges section of the Yangtze River in China. Panoramas of vineyards and forests and small ...
