Forum Coimbra: A bigger mall

Located in he left side of the river, facing the city, this new mall is, as expected, bigger than its predecessors.

What may we expect inside?

The usual - same stuff, same shops, same brands, confirming that commerce is nowadays a sort of card game - they just shuffle and deal the same cards all around the world.

Ah!

The building is attractive. As expected!

Door after door: Chinatown

Chinese are taking care of commerce in Portugal. One after the other, local shops are closing, replaced by a bank, a pizzeria or... a Chinese store.

They are discreet, not yet assumed as local community, but very soon we will have also in Portugal our several Chinatowns. In Coimbra, the streets around the Palace of Justice are already... Chinaland.

Dolce Vita: A Great Mall

Right beside the new football stadium, this is one of the three big malls in Coimbra, and Fernanda's first choice. Well, it has a nice decoration and the same shops as all the other malls, selling the same stuff, with the same brands, the same fast-food and fast-buy, fast-live... Damn globalization!

I heard that a bigger one was opened west of the river. What will be in it? Who will guess?
