Postcards from Porto

(please scroll down for english version)

Lisboa é a cidade onde sempre vivi, mas o Porto é para mim uma cidade especial, pois foi a minha morada de acolhimento durante os 5 anos de Universidade.

Mal conhecia o Porto quando me mudei para lá. Apenas tinha ouvido rumores sobre o quão cinzenta, taciturna e fria a cidade era. Mas enquanto lá morei, descobri uma cidade muito diferente! Descobri que cinzento é o manto enigmático que cobre o brilho sedutor da cidade; e o frio, de modo nenhum se reflete nas pessoas, que são calorosas e amigáveis.

Hoje decidi revisitar memórias e partilhar alguns postais que me fazem lembrar o Porto.

Postcards from Porto

I have always lived in Lisbon, but Oporto holds a special place in my heart, for it was my “host town” during my 5 years in University.

I barely knew the city when I was moving in, appart from the rumors about how grey, gloomy and cold it was. However, when I was living there, I discovered a totally different place! I realized that grey is the enigmatic cloack that covers the seductive glow of the city. As for the cold, by no means it reflects the nature of people, who are kind and friendly

So today I decided to look back at my memories, and share some postcards that remind me of Oporto.
