i found fancy porto today!! i had considered going back to coimbra to visit the magical forest on the 10,000 places to see before you die list, but considering the crazy weather i figured it wouldn't be the best idea to be stuck outside in a forest in a hail storm. so instead i hung out in porto and finally made it to the contemporary art museum - the bus showed up this time!!
on the way to the museum i also finally made it to the casa de musica - which is porto's concert hall. it's a gorgeous space inside, and the building itself is a work of art.
the serralves museum of contemporary art had a really great exhibit by juan munoz. there were some great sculpted pieces as well as large scale installations - a lot of that anything can be art type of art - which i LOVE.
as per ritual in the most amazing hostel i've stayed in so far, we gathered in the common room for movie watching during the evening. we went from godzilla, to the big lebowski, and finally to kill bill volume 1. by kill bill it was just the cute german and i left hanging in! :0)
