More First Impressions

More surprising views from pretty Porto.

While I did notice more indigents compared to Lisbon, it’s commendable how livable the city is, no doubt helped by making the most of the topography. I would go even further that living here is good for your health – a downhill trip via a maze of stairs from the Cathedral all the way to the Douro River was memorable, not only for the views along the way but also for the unexpected exercise. We even saw an elderly woman coming out of what was presumably her house in front of a long series of steps and saw her amble on by. It goes to show that if grandmothers can do it, why not the rest of us.
