Porto.

Three days in Porto with Amin, Andrea, and Silke.
There is much to love about Porto: The atmosphere, the people, the fact that four people pay less than 65 Euros for tapas, main courses, and several glasses of beer and wine. My favourite things, however, were the hours spent at the Atlantic Ocean; the artistic graffiti which cover about every other house and often distract from the somewhat derelict façade; the optimism of the locals to hang out the laundry in the drenching rain.

Porto, I am pretty sure we will meet again.

Drei Tage in Porto mit Amin, Andrea und Silke.
Es gibt vieles, das man an Porto lieben kann: Die Atmosphäre, die Menschen, die Tatsache, dass Tapas, Hauptgerichte und zahlreiche Gläser Bier und Wein für vier Personen weniger als 65 Euro gekostet haben. Meine Lieblingsdinge waren aber: die Stunden, die wir am Atlantik verbracht haben; die kunstvollen Graffiti, die jedes zweite Haus bedecken und oft von der etwas baufälligen Fassade ablenken; der Optimismus der Einheimischen, die bei strömendem Regen die Wäsche raushängen.

Porto, ich bin mir sicher, dass wir uns wieder sehen.
