Porto days 1 and 2

So…. it had been planned for a while that I would go to Portugal the first weekend in July to meet some friends from America/Canada/Mexico. And finally two weeks ago it was time to take the train for Frankfurt and fly to Porto. ‚The girl‘ (one from the US and the other one from Canada) arrived around the same time that I did and it couldn’t have been more perfect with our luggage belts being next to each other. When I had my suitcase I walked over to the other belt and they came just out of immigration. Timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Our inital idea had been to share a taxi but then we decided on a whim to take the metro – only to end up in the parking garage… 😀 We finally found the metro, bought the tickets and were off… once we got to our hotel we had rooms next to each other too. The american girl wanted to stay in but with the canadian I went off to explore a bit and we found our own personal panorama spot over Porto… 😉 Then dinner and sleep…
The next morning our american friends who live in Mexico were supposed to come in by train from Lisbon. We went to explore Porto first and found out that Barak Obama was supposed to arrive later that day for a climate conference. Around noon the ‚mexicans‘ arrived so we headed back to meet with them for lunch. Obama somewho sneakily arrived without saying hello to us… 🙁 After lunch we hung out a bit I went out again with the girls, the ‚mexicans‘ somehow were out cold… and that was it… 🙂 Here are some impressions from the two days…
