Train ride from from hell and seats that couldn't have been designed more uncomfortably meant a night of no sleep. Finally got to Porto's Campanha station. Fairly quickly caught a train to São Bento, the downtown station. Had a quick bite to eat (embarrassing, but it was Mc D's), then started the quest for a hotel room. Stopped at the tourist info office for a list of hotels then started walking. An hour or so later and we randomly ended up in the same hotel that I stayed in last year but had completely forgotten until I saw it.
Crossed the bridge to the Vila Nova de Gaia where the port caves (cellars) are. We tried to go to the Sandeman Lodge - the one I visited last year, but there was a forty-five minute wait until the next English tour so we decided to save the 500 escudos and try one or more of the free cellars. We ended up going to three lodges: Porto Vasconcellos, Kopke, and Graham's. We only did the tour at the Porto Vasconcellos lodge, it wasn't very good and after that we stuck just to the tasting. The Kopke lodge was very old and beautiful and they had the best tasting port by far. Graham's Lodge was also pretty good and the view from the top of the hill was spectacular - thought the hike up wasn't so fun.
We had diner at a pretty expensive little restaurant on the river (back on the Porto side). It was good but a little strange as I got my grilled pork about forty minutes before Amy got her fish. Walked home, stopping at the train station to buy tickets for tomorrow morning, then headed home to bed.
