I was lucky enough to be asked to meet up with INEGI, a joint venture between Portugese industry and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP). The visit was productive and also allowed a good bit of tourism before and after meetings to explore Porto, a city I have never been to before.
Of note: great river, the Douro. Great bridgescape. Deep sharp river valley leading to a wide river mouth onto the Atlantic. More than a few Harry Potter inspirations from when JK Rowling lived there, some really funky food, and really great port!
