it always amazes me the fact that, in most cases, the city you know the least, is the one you live in.
i've been to most monuments, museums, churches in the cities i visited abroad.
but not in porto, my hometown.
so last october, me and tó decided we'd visit one of the iconic monuments of the city - the clérigos tower.
there were hundreds of steep stair to climb. they were narrow and when we'd cross someone coming down we'd have to perform something that looked like a circus number.
as we finally reached the top, strong wind brushed our hair, and chilled our cheeks.
the day was foggy, just like today.
and the view was something worthy.
it just reminded us the importance of acknowledging what's there, right in our face, to be seen and experienced.
