Leixões marina is situated right in the middle of the industrial harbour. That does NOT add positively to the atmosphere. However I did find a very nice shopping centre? Oh yes, nice shopping centres do exist when you are stuck in traffic, desperate to get out of the rainsoaked wet, crowded bus.
In Leixões I also discovered that Portugal is on a different time zone! I only took me about a week ...
Loa Arrived on Friday and she is staying until next Friday and hopefully we'll make it close to Lisboa before then.
Yesterday we went driving around the countryside and ... well the Portuguese doesn't think too much of road signs. At least the don't use the in a frequently manner like I'm used to, so we spent about 3-4 hours finding our way from Porto to Leixões - a distance of appx. 5 km. But we got to see Porto and it's absolutely digable. At least the old part is really interesting and quite different from the architecture I've seen so far. It's nice - I could see my self in a house alongside the river.
Anyway now we're heading for Figueira Da Foz or whatever we're up for. There doesn't seem to be any wind, so I don't know how far we'll get.
