Living in Portugal

Dear Editor

This is Portugal, and having travelled extensively in Europe consider it to be no different than anywhere else. You don’t see many signs in a foreign language in England, France or many other countries.

When my family lived in Portugal they all went to Portuguese state schools, have many Portuguese friends to this day who also moan about things that are wrong in their country.

But maybe if many of the expats tried to survive on a Portuguese state pension they would certainly have something to moan about, presuming, of course, they can speak enough Portuguese to ask someone how much it is.
