08/07/07: Pedal Joe arrives in Portugal

After having logged in 1835 km (950 in Spain) since he left Paris with Johannesburg as his destination in a pedal go-kart, Pedal Joe arrived today in Portugal via the one hundred year old bridge between Tui (Spain) and Valença (Portugal)

The first Portuguese city to be visited was the historic and almost one thousand year old city of Valença do Minho. After visiting the fortress that, hundreds of years ago defended the city, Pedal Joe descended the Vale do Minho, arriving in the afternoon at the town of Caminha.
