Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

Lots of cities founded on great natural ports. Vancouver certainly is one of them, Lisbon another and Porto our second city even if it cannot rivaled in port size with Lisbon and Vancouver was so important in older times that is the only city I know that is only called simply port. Porto means in Portuguese port.







Curiously today the port is only used by Tourist boats that go up the river and only now a Marina is being built on the other side of the river.
