Sunset in Parque das Nações

Here are the sunset pictures from Parque das Nações. Like I mentioned before, for 9 days I was staying in Expo area due to rental issues.

The Portuguese Are Lazy

The Portuguese are lazy, they don't work, they just chill, drink wine, and play football . That's a typical opinion on Portugal in the North. Well, for some reason, the stereotypes in other countries are not much better. More than that, I had myself the similar picture of Portugal before I actually arrived here 3… Continue reading The Portuguese Are Lazy
