The nights in Portugal are even better than the days. Countless hours of beating feet winding through cobblestone alleyways deserves respite. A pitcher of sangria on a patio with a breeze is legendary here. This country is proud with colonial bounty like no other and Porto is exemplary. It must be a country of sadists that paves every path enroute to view beautiful Azulejo tiles in perfect tiny cobblestones. No surface is quite so unforgiving while simultaneously mind boggling in the effort it must have required to lay. For a must see - must do traveler this combination is hell, but worth the reward of port-a-plenty, hidden Fado clubs, delicate cuisine and the incredible hospitality of every Portuguese citizen. And if luck shines down upon you there will be one thin strip of cobble free lane to guide you to Sandeman's.
