Events from Porto

Hmmm...I wonder what this does?

Thank you Chris for letting me know about the video link. I have fixed the problem. So please click on the video below to watch it. You were not missing much, since Shaun and I were just having fun with the local wildlife. I will suggest that you turn up the volume and listen closely.

So the last couple of days we have been meeting with some companies, eating some great food (that never changes), and hanging out at the karaoke wine bar. I desecrated "Love Shack" by the B-52's last night. I am sure someone caught it on their camera, so give me a little time and I will find the footage so that I may burn it!

Here are some pics and vids from the last couple of days...

This the CFO, VP, and my teachers at Mota-Engil.

This is my class. The seats are the same color of the inside of the bus we have been traveling in. I would have thought to see a lot of green in Dublin, but nothing like I have seen in Porto.

This video shows laminate being made. The place was not as automated as it could be. I atributed this to Portugals low labor cost. It is just not worth upgrading when people will work for so little.

This last video shows women sorting paper into the laminate layers. It is a bit repetitive. I could not imagine doing something like this all day, every day.

  1. OK, my favorite video was the sheep sounded like the backyard of the place I lived at when I first got to Mexico.
