Sprint 1 — Day 4
A ride with a local Uber driver:
- We are convinced we should explore Porto and might do so right after the Azores islands;
- Fascinated to hear how a protest by taxi drivers fueled Uber’s popularity in Portugal and made Uber legal as of January 2017;
- Inspired by Web Summit Lisbon stories and might consider participating next year.
A visit to Oceanario de Lisboa, the largest indoor aquarium in Europe:
- Revisited the idea that despite the 1.8 mln known marine species, it is estimated that 91% of the species in the ocean have yet to be discovered;
- and blown away by the “Forests Underwater” exhibit by Takashi Amano. Do we really need so many things in our lives?
