Fondest memory: I've come to realize that the Portuguese are very proud of their country. Many people criticize Americans for being very patriotic, but I feel as if it is even more so here. Sure, the 2004 EURO (hosted in Portugal) certainly tied the country together and gave them a sense of unity. Still, they know they are proud even if they don't want to admit it, and I respect them for that.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
