Sorry, back to Sao Joao - huge national holiday, lots of parades, people getting hit on the head with plastic hammers and fireworks =) I've heard incredible stories about all of Porto scrambling onto the bridge above the Duoro with drinks and toy hammers and JUMPING.
Unfortunately it happened mid-week this year, so Ricardo was studying for his exam, Sandro stayed home, Vera had dinner with her brother and then headed home, and Irene and I were going to go to the beach in Foz, but ended up watching TV instead and eating chocolate torte from Vienna and Hagan Daaz! Whooo!! =) we would run out onto the balcony to try and catch the fireworks that were happening all over the city. Irene has a great view of quite a bit of the horizon, but as luck would have it, the fireworks were happening right behind these walls of the other apartment - waah!
