No dia seguinte visitámos a livraria Lello, antes de almoçar com o meu amigo Marco Lourenço. Ele ofereceu-me uma garrafa de vinho grande reserva, e eu ofereci-lhe um canivete fabricado na minha aldeia. Da parte da tarde visitámos os Clérigos, ainda com sol e muito calor, e rumámos a Guimarães, onde iríamos pernoitar.
We reached Oporto before seven in the evening. We search our charming apartment in Ribeira, a renovated duplex, bright and full of identity, Airbnb for ninety euros a night. We dined on a terrace nearby, and we found the first geocache from the holiday week, with the help of Alvaro, a native who lived there and gave us some very important tips to find the small box, tucked in a green metallic tube, along the stone wall beneath the Church of San Francisco. After dinner we walked trough Ribeira, full of people from all over the world, and we crossed on foot Luis I bridge, to Gaia. Sitting on a granite cobblestone, I risked myself to draw the crossed iron elements on the bridge designed by the Belgian Théophile Seyrig, on a full moon night.
The next day we visited Lello bookshop, before lunch with my friend Marco Lourenço. He offered me a bottle of gran reserva wine, and I offered him a small knife made in my hometown. In the afternoon we visited Clérigos, with sun and heat, and we headed to Guimarães, where we would spend the night.
