This postcard comes to you this week from Porto, Portugal…
June 21st, 2013

This postcard comes to you this week from Porto, Portugal, home of the finest ports in the world, and, arguably, the world’s best salt cod (bacalhau) dishes. I have already had quite a few of such meals, doing a comparative analysis, of course. That’s the Douro River and embankment as seen from the Louis V bridge.

No more time for blogging. This is a non-working holiday and I am trying to stay away from the keyboard. Just taking notes of all the sights and smells in this gorgeous, if economically-challenged, country.
