Turns out that Sunday afternoon, around the time I took this photo above, was just about as clear as the skies were willing to get during my three days or so in Porto. It’s definitely a city I hope to visit again, hopefully with more auspicious weather to enjoy what’s clearly a lovely riverfront and city streets even more chock-full of beautifully tile-fronted buildings than I recollect even Lisbon being, from my long weekend there many years ago. Thinking there might still be some interest in seeing this lovely city even under gray and rainy conditions, I’m assembling most of city-vista photos here. Some are quite similar but I felt showed something interesting (e.g. that tram / cable cars are as popular in Porto as they are in Madeira, though I’ve a feeling I haven’t yet shown you those from Madeira), or that the orange trees and other sub-tropical-type plans indicate clearly that the climate in Porto is generally more salubrious than what I experienced.
