How's about a nice glass of Port wine?
22 April 2005 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Even today, when you visit the river margins of Porto and Gaia, looking at the rabelo boats (that used to carry the Port Wine from up-river), the iron bridges built by Eiffel and his pupils, and you sense Porto has been remade as a city for tourists, you can still sense Porto is, and was, the Portuguese "working capital", as represented in the magnificent movie Aniki Bobó, a sunny city of honest workers, kids playing happily and careless in the streets, old streets of stone and green... Aniki Bobó is a trip to a Porto that disappeared (most of the town depicted in the movie is now ruins), but still lives, through the lives and dreams of kids. Immortal.
