(Odd) Glimpses of Portugal

Here’s some (just some) strange stuff about Portugal.

  • Shoeshines didn’t completely die out.

  • There are lots of circular fields.

  • People eat late, sleep later.

  • (Latin-derived languages speakers only) You can understand written Portugese, but in a conversation you won’t catch a single word.

  • Every moment is the right moment to say obrigado.
