Douro river in Foz-Tua. Nowadays the river runs in plateaus. Each dam creates an artificial lake.

Here, it runs approximately on the original level. A perfect place to get up on the train upriver. Foz-Tua is also a micro climate that produces oranges all year long.

On the other hand, opposed to douro internacional dramatic border, deep in the northeast, a village is both Portuguese and Spanish. For long time pasture of anthropological and sociological research due to its collaborative community practices. Now it seems driven towards a touristic fate. Really difficult to differentiate Portugal from Spain here…

anyway, very different from rio de … janeiro
