PORTO. "The Unvanquished City" - Part II

the adult years (2012-2015)

As I left work today it was snowing here in Warsaw. A gentle, soft snow covering everything in white and muffling all the sounds of the big city. While walking home, I realized how this has become my reality and it almost feels like this has been like that my whole life. As I got home my mind was somehow dragged to 2013 and I remembered a video I made that summer, somehow depicting my life in Porto around that time. I immediately searched for it in my computer and watched it. What a stark contrast in colour and scenario! Sun, beach, light! I was filled with nostalgia, but the good kind of nostalgia! The one that makes us smile and feel warm inside, knowing that the past was amazing but also that it belongs exactly there, in the past.

Then I also remembered that I had written once a post in this blog about my first years in Porto (2001-2008) and that I had never written the second part about the period 2012-2015. So on a random night here in cold Warsaw in early 2017 and rather than writing about those years, I will let the images speak for themselves and show a part of my life back then. A kind of full circle.

It's been only 4 years since that video was made, but it's impressive how through the images I can see how much the city has changed since then. I guess I must continue recording my life here in Warsaw as well. This city is changing rapidly and I might not be here for long. Who knows where or when the winds of change will blow me away?!

Hopefully some of these images and places will be familiar to some of you that visited the city already and bring good memories as well! Oh and by the way, Maceda, my eternal beach looks glorious as always! Songs are from Sigur Ros.
