Blog48-ending Christmas in Porto Portugal

Gods gift to all of us in the Watt family, was simply the trip and a time to share in our love for each other. No gifts, just time together, it was far better than any other gift we could have been given. We done  big walki g tour of Lisbon, ate a fine dining places, ate at crappy ones well. Headed south to the very southernmost tip of Europe, while we enjoyed it we did get the car broke into and lost passports and laptops as well as a harddrive with images from southern Afrika that will never be replaced…..but, Christ did make sure that we are all well and healthy. Back to Lisbon and had replacements passports in 24hours. Jumped a cheap flight to Marrakesh, Morroco. Done several tours in Morroco for 5 days…..then back to Lisbon. From Lisbon, we drove north to Porto which is the capital city for the PORT WINE manufacturers. Now, we all enjoyed everywhere else in Portugal, but we all fell in love with Porto…..what a charming city to spend several days in. We have pretty much abandoned the standard regular hotels while traveling and have gone to apartments which are cheaper and enjoyable and homey feeling. Everything is loadex, the bike is tore apart and boxed up, all the rugs are packed and the Morrocan door ks also loaded…….yes, a door. For what…..heck we dont know, its just to cool to passup. One little side note that amazed us, is just how bad the air pollution is in Porto especially, but all along Portugal as well. Never really did find out why its so bad.

    Hello Jeremiah … Wonderful photographs , especially of Pine and Nevada , they are a couple of thoroughbreds indeed . You and Colleen have much to feel grateful for , and to be proud of . I especially enjoyed the photo of the gentleman with his hair grown long on the sides to cover his bald head , I always thought that was a peculiarity of accountants and academics in state universities . Somehow it’s comforting to know it is an international phenomenon … I trust you are well and finding safe passage thru the eastern states , which are supposed to be Dandy , or so the people say … wishing you journey mercies and great connections as you cycle toward home . Randy
