Douro Azul», one of the beautiful Ships of the Fleet of [DOURO AZUL])
Today, the King of Norway visited in the morning the Institute of Molecular Pathology and Immunology of the University of Oporto [IPATIMUP] - a private non-profit association of public utility, established in 1989. The visit was integrated in a Session held on IPATIMUP’s Auditorium from 9.00 a.m. to 11.45 a.m. about “Health innovation in Norway and Portugal”, with the participation of Norwegian and Portuguese experts and moderated by Prof. Rui Guimarães. His Majesty left at 11.45, but the Session will continue in a more scientific area, “Oncology Research – Innovation Opportunities”, with the discussion leaders Prof. Janh Nesland and Prof. Raquel Seruca and the participation of some researchers from the Norwegian Institute for Cancer Research, the Portuguese Oncology Institute–Oporto and IPATIMUP. This second part will extend until 5.15 p.m. Their Majesties the King and Queen of Norway are now meeting the Mayor of Oporto and will sail at River Douro aboard a Ship called «[Douro Azul]». LONG LIVE THE KING AND QUEEN OF NORWAY!!!...

Wonderful coverage of the Norwegian king and queen's visit. They have visited Seattle on several occasions to help celebrate events and places important in the Norwegian-American community here, (which is rather large!).
