Coimbra is a university town with a beautiful historic center.
University students selling pencils to fundraise for graduation expenses. The university is the most prestigious in Portugal.
Like I said, it’s a university town! The Universidade de Coimbra was the first in Portugal and one of the first in Europe.
Olive and Alice explore the narrow lanes of the old town.

We arrived after dark. In the morning this was the scene just outside our door.
Old, colorful buildings.
People walking to work along the Rio Douro. It was so unhurried, calm and serene. Porto!

Olive and Cooper walk along the Rio Douro in Porto, Portugal. Porto is one of the most picturesque cities I’ve ever visited. Everywhere you look there’s a view. This photo was made with a plastic camera on film!

Nostalgia is a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time.
I took these photos a month or so ago after a bit of rain.
I’d trade a sunny seventy-five degree afternoon for a cool, blustery rain storm any day!
