First Project

Hello Emi here. I hope you are all well. I was recommended a project in the heart of Porto. I am here now from Friday. It's an association working on organising workshops and events. There is a small but beautiful garden. I had a good weekend. Friday was quiet. Saturday we had a Reggae event full house. Sunday a nice craft fair with live music. https://espacocompasso.com/ #permaculture #project #events #workshops #porto

25th of April

Hello, Emi here. I hope you are all well. After almost two days of rain finally turned into a beautiful afternoon. The 25th of April is a national holiday in Portugal called “Freedom Day.” Freedom Day commemorates 1974’s Carnation Revolution when the Portuguese people backed a military coup and overthrew the Estado Novo dictatorship that had ruled the country since 1933. The Carnation Revolution got its name from the country’s peaceful transition of power. The soldiers did no

Urban Colours

"Porto is the second-largest city in Portugal, after Lisbon, and the name “Porto” itself influenced the name of the country “Portugal”. Established by the Celts on the mouth of the Douro River, it was occupied by the Romans during the fourth century, transforming it into an influential commercial port and renaming it “Portus Cale”. In 456, it was invaded by Theodoric II, King of the Visigoths, who remained in their power until 716, when it fell under the Moorish Muslim invas

Elements

Everything in nature is made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space. Knowledge of the five elements allows the yogi to understand the laws of nature and to use yoga to attain greater health, power, knowledge, wisdom and happiness. This arises out of deep intuition of how the universe operates. https://www.yogajournal.com/lifestyle/purifying-the-five-elements-of-our-being/#:~:text=Everything%20in%20nature%20is%20made,of%20how%20the%20universe%20operates.

Spotted by locals

"Then, recently, Porto became a tourist magnet and many neighbourhoods kind of succumbed to it, becoming a bit uncharacteristic. But Fontainhas managed to keep its local charm. Loud people, small (and slightly stinky) cafes, the old washtub areas where the women used to wash their clothes while either fighting, gossiping or singing. Not to mention the breathtaking views of the river Douro and its beautiful bridges and the rumble of the train going into the tunnels. I just ado

After Lockdown

"Porto’s Botanical Garden is a space where three dimensions converge: recreation, history and botanics. It is not a very big garden – 4 ha to be precise – but it is full of old town charm. The house the property are now runned by the Faculty of Sciences (Porto University) but were formerly owned by the Christ Order and after that by João Salabert. Finally, it belonged to the Andresen family, who sold it to the State of Portugal in 1949." https://localporto.com/porto-botanical

Happy Easter!

Magical Gardens in Porto. "Palácio de Cristal’s (Crystal Palace) gardens are the most beautiful gardens in Porto. That’s how I would like to start. I cannot assure, though, that this opinion is not biased for my childhood memories of the walks in these gardens. But, and this I can assure, no one will stay indifferent to their location and harmony." https://localporto.com/crystal-palace-gardens-porto/ #Eastercolors #magicalparks #porto #portugal

Train and food

Hello, Emi here. I hope you are all well. I'm in Porto for a week now. The trip would be one and a half hour drive by car from Coimbra. It happened to be four and a half by train. I added one more hour because I didn't get on my first train. There was a miss understanding. Luckily the next one was scheduled in an hour.
