Weekend trip!

Posted by sue on September 20th, 2007

I’ve always said that I’d like to live in a “real city” at some point. You know, where a car is not only unnecessary but more trouble than it’s worth, you walk everywhere or take public transportation, you shop at local stores because they’re nearby and there’s only so far you want to carry your stuff.

But in the summer time, the crowdedness of the city is rather oppressive, and sweating profusely on your walk to work is not all that fun. So we decided to take a little weekend trip up north to see more of Portugal, and get into the country a little bit. We were sort of successful, in that we saw some of the Douro River valley (where they grow the grapes for port wine! Yum!), and we spent some time in the smallish town of Lamego. We also spent some time in Porto, which is a pretty large city, but it was lovely and the weather was cool and pleasant, so it was definitely a good, relaxing trip.

    Also, don’t you think port tastes like raisins?

  4. sue Says:

    Hmm. Len and I have taken your question very seriously, and for research we’ve drunk about half a bottle of Offley Tawny Porto this lovely Sunday evening to test your assertion of “raisininess.” No, it doesn’t take like raisins to me. Not nearly as sweet as raisins, and not as evidently grapey. Maybe Ruby ports or White ports taste more like raisins– we’ll get back to you after more research.
