The francesinha is Porto's staple dish - a french toast with different sorts of pork meat and a secret sauce to tie it all together.

He brought a huge box full of sketchbooks he had filled since he was an architecture student. I spent a whole day selecting the most interesting drawings.
It was a wonderful experience that opened my eyes to a new world. In the last 10 years I have the feeling of being in a long journey.
I like to discover the cities where I live, to understand why a place is the way it is and what makes it different and unique from others. Drawing is for me a way to learn to love a place, to become part of it. I like to draw architecture but I am more attracted to urban scenery, portraying how people live in the city.
I always carry a small watercolor travel set from Windsor and Newton and my sketchbook in my bag. I always thought that drawing was a solitary experience until I found Urban Sketchers. It was amazing to find so many people doing the same thing. It is a great place to share! Please proceed with caution!
