When the Douro river has this color it means heavy rainfall
The river that crosses the valley where I live has not this name randomly. It comes from its color, which means “golden” in Portuguese. After the heavy rainfall of the last months, the Douro river is more yellow/brown/ golden than ever. Soon, boats will start to bring tourists to see the landscape and to visit the wineries. Spring is coming, it is time to visit the Douro valley! Who is coming to visit us?
