Coimbra ... the town that just didnt

I went there for one reason, and i didnt get to do it.

semi-overcast 19 °C
View Spain/Portugal 2007 on therook's travel map.

I went to coimbra to see a forest. I didnt get to go because of the weird bus hours. So, i walked around and went shopping. and then left. It was okay.

This is the coimbra university. It is one of the oldest in Europe, being founded in 1100 something.

This was near the university. They seemed to have some very radical views there. And clothing styles.

There were tiles murals all along one street. I liked the fact they were all in blue, and looked like they were sketched almost.

This was the university botanical garden. Very beautiful. And finally, a FREE garden!

Some old houses by the university. Coimbra was very colorful.

Architecture in coimbra. I forget who made this one. Its supposed to be a rennasaiance style, but i dont know.

busses.jpg
And lastly, I bet GRACE would want one of these. Its an electronic bus timetable that tells you which bus, and how many minutes until it will arrive at the stop. Its almost a relief.
