Festa de São João do Porto

 

Celebrating São João in Porto with Annette until 4 in the morning. We run all the way from the metro of Trinidad almost to the river, just in time to see the fireworks, which were exceptional. The crowd was fantastic and the paper lanterns representing dreams and wishes were in the sky all night long. Annette lantern took off too, with the help of some local "experts". There was music everywhere and we moved from place to place joining in the dancing and the exchanges of "hammerings"! Annette is from Amsterdam and is a passionate surfer.
