... now. Friday was a wonderful day. Miguel took us off on a tour of the Douro valley. The Douro is the river whose mouth is at Porto, and whose source is in Spain, and it winds down to Porto in a valley and many side valleys along the many tributaries that join the Douro.

Seeing all the different coaches that rich people rode in, including what Queen Elizabeth II rode when she came to Lisbon, and marveling at the different levels of ornateness that existed back then. Aside from having no rights as a woman, it would be fun to travel back in time to wear the fancy dresses, and ride in a horse-drawn carriage! Oh to be royalty!
In the evening, we headed over to the Chiado/Baixa ...
