Porto: Port, Park, Cobblestone Collection, Cat
PortPermalink to “Port”
Port, where wine’s fermentation is stopped early by adding a bunch of brandy. Sugars remain (it is sweet), and of course the brandy is there too (it is strong).
- White (from white grapes) — nice as port and tonic, meh on its own
- Ruby (red, some oak’ing) — drink with cheese, meat, chocolate
- Tawny (brown, super oaked) — spiced and oak-y, as digestif, or w/ salted cheeses or baking spice desserts
ParkPermalink to “Park”
New favorite park on the planet, Parque da Cidade do Porto.
This might have been a “water in the desert” situation after being packed in with hoards of tourists and cars in a gazillion cobblestone streets for two weeks, but damn if this place wasn’t amazing.
Ponds, fields, wooded areas, paths, overlooks, shade, sun, quiet, and space.
Cobblestone CollectionPermalink to “Cobblestone Collection”
I have discovered that cobblestone is a genre rather than a thing. Behold.
