We can also find at Ridgewood this kind of neat, minimalist bars featuring white Eames chairs, and, the most important, a good cappuccino! The scenario was soundtracked by Easy-listening (not too bad)  and was framed by this huge bicep tattooed Italian dude, whose #yellow shirt matched perfectly with my bike on the background (the color I mean…)

  

 

This is the vision I get, when I put the feet on the sidewalk, leaving from my house at Oporto: It is a strange combination of nice modern buildings from the middle XXs and the Neo classic church. All the constructions have a strong urban alignment, except the religious building, giving that corner a strange tension that is emphasized by the horizontal and vertical contrasting proportions of the other two buildings I love (both from great Portuguese architects).

The higher one, from the Architects Pádua Ramos and Carlos Loureiro, was the first large-scale structure in this city using reinforced concrete. The other is one from one of my favourite Portuguese architects: Arménio Losa.
