It is not uncommon to see people walking along the railway lines in Portugal, or nipping across the tracks from one platform to another. That happens quite a lot in Oiã, where there is a two track line, one up and one down. But this was the first time I had spotted someone crossing the lines at Aveiro. A couple of minutes after this picture was taken, the high-speed train from Braga came through the station. Of course the most unfortunate thing I saw (or the funniest, depending on your point of view) is when a woman opened the door on the wrong side of the train and fell onto the track.
