Today we took the kids into Porto, the second largest city in Portugal. We went in search of the Largest Christmas Tree in Europe, but I think Lisbon won that bid this year, so we ended up ‘wax skating’, bouncy jumping, playing in snow bubbles and eating at the Imperial McDonald’s. Even though our van worked just fine, we stopped at a metro station (subway) so the kids could enjoy their first ever ride. We took the metro right into the middle of the city. As soon as we got on and it took off, all the kids went flying backwards about 5 feet and went crashing to the ground. I was laughing so hard I couldn’t help any of them up. Metros don’t mess around! It was obvious to everyone that we weren’t from around those parts!!
