There are not that many unvisited countries in "Western" side of Europe for me - Iceland, Ireland, Andorra, Lichtenstein, Greece. But this time we decided to cross one out of the list and finally go to Greece.

Porto, Portugal

I spent about 4 hours in Porto, Portugal a few weeks ago. That is 4 hours for photography, rest of the time I used to another dear hobby - wines. What I can tell from that short stop, it was charming, exceptional city. The views around the Douro river were just beautiful. But what struck me most, was the timeless feeling. I mean, the port lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia must have been there for ages and they are still there, very much unchanged. There seems to be few signs of modern times on the city side, too - at least if you look from river level.

Berlin is a curious city for me. It is a major capital, with fascinating history, only short flight away from Finland. Yet, I had never been there, neither has most of my friends. That made it a perfect destination for a couple of days of intense photography.

The lakes froze really quick and very large snowflakes formed on top of the ice.

This year the winter was very late. Just end of last week it was black and wet. Over the weekend it turned to cold. Yesterday it was -15 centigrades and the lake was busy freezing, as you can see.

Carpaccio!

Wanted to do some good snack for evening. Classic carpaccio recipe: a little sea salt, thyme and basil on top on cellophane. Wrap piece of raw tenderloin tightly with that cellophane. Put to freezer for couple of hours. Then make as thin slices as you can. Add olive oil and lemon juice mixture. Pile some rucola and parmesan chips in the middle. Place capers on the plate and finally grind some black pepper on top.

I wanted some nice white wine with that, this time the selection was Comtes Lafon Meursault-Charmes 2007, excellent Chardonnay based Burgundy. Even though it is young still, it feels very enjoyable at the moment. On the nose there is perfect balance of fruit and earth, some hint of typical buttery notes as well. On the palate it it nice, smooth and round, almost vanilla-like. The ending has lot of citrus in it, which matches very well with the lemon in carpaccio. Will be good stuff in the future, but not anyhow bad right now.
