  • The very edge of Europe. And also the "enging of the Port" because in Latvian "gal" kind of stands for "ending/ edge" so Portugal sounds like Latgale which is an actual region here.

    • lol

      so happy singing about your colonizers xD

    • Well, you weren't bad colonizers after all. You gave us a great language, your royalty lived here for a long time and our first dinasty after our independence was very closely related to your nobility and it was like this until 1889. Maybe we being separated countries is still a historical accident.

  • Porto is really nice but the beaches there are less than desirable. Food is fantastic. Port wine obviously great. The women... hit or miss but I like the short, thick body type they have and willingness to get freaky without even really knowing your name. Wait staff at restaurants are rude compared to everywhere except Russia. Southern Portugal is beautiful. Great sand beaches. Of my travels, Portugal is a mid-tier with Spain being way better (sorry I know those are fighting words)

      I'm from there :)

    • The only reason I know about Azores is because of a video game in which I would colonize America.
      Azores was the island to get when I wanted to send ships to the New World because it had the closest distance.

    • I bet it served as a strategic point in real history, many times

      we even had an American military bas in one of our islands, not that long ago

  • I think they want independence from Spain or something... never understood wtf is happening there, i hear people did a revolution and got Algarve full of people cause they approve homos and drugs.

      But it is a matter of getting used to it, because brazillians usually get us very well and we, Brazillians.

  • Pretty much a lot. My family lives there and I go to Portugal every year. So I think of nice beaches, beautiful weather, nice food, but also about lazy and nice people and everything there is a mess. I've been to Lisboa, Porto, Serra da Estrela, also somewhere in the Algarve and I always go to Vila nova de Milfontes where my family lives.

  • Here in the USA, we learned about Portugal when we covered explorers and colonies, but they never updated us on what Portugal was doing since about 1700! I know Portugal is great at soccer and I heard it is a fun and safe country to visit, but never had the money to go to Europe myself.

    Jewish merchants who escaped the Spanish Inquisition (long story - family history searches).

    Beautiful countryside.

    My friend who is half Portuguese.

    Brazil.

    People getting mad at me when I say that Portuguese reminds me of a mix of Spanish and French (especially spelling-wise). Sorry! It really does and it confuses me because I can almost understand it but not (I speak some Spanish)!

    Uh - not sure what else. Lisbon?

      hmm let me think

      You have bacalhau cozido (boiled codfish)
      also cozido à portuguesa
      sopas de espírito santo (even if they are kind of heavy - takes a lot of bread and meat in this soup, but it is quite tasty. It's for a special celebration we have)
      fofas, sonhos de abóbora, travesseiros de sintra, pastéis de tentúgal (all these are deserts).
      arroz de marisco (rice with seafood), açorda de gambas (like some kind of soup with bread and shrimp), carne de porco à alentejana.
