The Portuguese and Their Dogs

In one of the posts below, I wrote about how the Portuguese treat their dogs. It turned out to be a bigger thing than I thought. It is on a completely different level, and sometimes I feel that the quality of life of a Portuguese dog is better than mine, and their menu is more... Continue Reading →


The Portuguese can’t handle bad weather

Portuguese people can't handle bad weather. First of all, let's identify what is bad weather in general. Coming from Russia and living in Finland, I see bad weather as a terrible storm, intense rain, or even snowfall. And yes, it also depends on the season.

Alfama, 1
