We arrived inn Oporto about 16:00 and found ourselves in old town. After several false starts, we finally found our way to the Cathedral, where we got the first stamp in our Camino passports. There was a concert going on for an international gathering of a lay organization which seemed to have something to do with sacred arts. We were impressed that they wanted to put on such a grand show to welcome us! We met another Peregrino who told us about the place he was staying. We had quite a job finding it but it is comfortable, clean and has hot showers (which I gather will be at a premium henceforth). Mark treated us to this place (which is a little more expensive than we had planned) and to dinner in the most fabulous plaza and boulevard. Tomorrow, we begin the Camino to Santiago.

    Hi Bob, You have likely finished your first day and are snug as a bug in a rug. Thinking of you as you begin the camino. Deepest prayers as you see the face of Christ in your sister and brother pilgrims. I know your face and heart will reflect Christ to those you meet.
