Wandering through the streets of Porto

"Walking is a virtue, tourism is a deadly sin."
Bruce Chatwin, What Am I Doing Here?

During 2013 I visited Oporto in Portugal twice to attend educational conferences. After delivering my academic papers I spent idle time wandering through the old town, Ribeira district, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Admiring the beautiful blue and white tiles that cover many of the buildings, and the typography of local shop signs.
