Title: Oporto

We spent the whole Thursday travelling over Dusseldorf to Oporto and arrived Leixoes by taxi in the evening. My neighbour Jan Erik Kroon joined me , and being a steel motorboat owner back home I was happy to share experiences on steel boat issues.
Dora Mac was allright allthough dirty from pollution most probably from the industrial areas of Leixoes port.
The whole Saturday was spent in Oporto proving to be as charmy and beautiful as it´s reputation. It´s Portugals second city located in the end of Duoro river and with a long history of wine and portwine production.
We went to Taylor´s house for portwine noosing allthough Sandeman Port is the portwine you find easiest in Sweden.The city is divided by the river with several bridges crossing.There`s a marina close to Oporto allthough coming there singlehanded with Dora Mac would be a challenge since there´s a current constantly floating through the marina.
