Today, I would like to tell you a bit about the life of people in Portugal.
Every day, almost all Portuguese people meet with their friends in cafes to meet and drink together … coffee! They celebrate those kind of meetings, they can spend hours with each other, sipping coffee and eating pastel de nata. I think it’s great! Often, people forget about friends and family, having only time to work and after work -time, they come back home, watch TV and go to sleep. Portuguese people have shown me that the ordinary small acts cause a smile on your face!
I noticed that in Madeira a lot of people are meeting in cafes to drink coffee and look at the ocean. They laugh with their friends, talk about their day and enjoy life.
When you’re in Madeira – take a good look at these people, they can give up technology for a moment to stay among their relatives and stay in “NOW”, in the beautiful present.
