Writing this post was not easy.
I wanted to give some information about the Douro river, in the north of Portugal. My not-that-great memory assured me I had already spoken about it – and it was right.
I could tell you about the uncertain origin of the name Douro (maybe related to the Celtic tribes that existed there before the Romans, maybe related to the god Durius…). I could speak about all the monuments, cities, towns and villages that exist on its margins. I could even write about all the dams and bridges you can find there. But how could I put into words the foggy mornings and the peaceful water surface?
I don’t think I could.

Looking at the first enigmatic picture, I wonder why no one has written a major piece of classical music. Maybe Elgar should have visited the Douro.
If he had there’s the risk that maybe he would have drunk too much Port – and no epic musical piece could ever have been written 😉
Yeah maybe Marion should have as well… then her books could have better mists to write about!! 😀
“But how could I put into words the foggy mornings and the peaceful water surface?” Photo number one i think..
