Boom soon! :-)

Hello from Porto Calem! (the calm port). My fifth day in the country and I’ve spent them all in Lisboa and Porto. Heading for the hills soon I guess. Wanna see the Douro valley and maybe try some more of local sweet fruit juices from this area. Bit too sweet for my taste really, I’m a beer guy as most of you already know. Port wine is like candy, best with ice cream.

Been walking around a lot, and met some really nice local people. Have been practising on my Portuguese, so I haven’t talked much to fellow tourists. Will be enough time for that in a week from now when the summer’s biggest psychedelic trance gathering takes place here in the Serra da Estrelas, near Castelo Branco.

Love,
Tommy Hermansen
