the portuguese are nice.

500.000 people on the streets with only one motto: Fuck you Troika.

I like it. Simple and to the point.

Go portugal :D

I've never been there but I've always liked pictures of the Porto region in Northern Portugal as well as Viana do Castelo.

Never been there either but as fate had it I knew some girls from there (Lisbon specifically).
Personally I like their style lot better than the spanish which exclude some kind of imperium (must be the king they still have, kind of retarded - but it's me so don't take it seriously)

I agree with all the above 3 posts

Been there... 24 yrs ago, probably the best trip in my life
I liked Porto better than Lisbon.
I felt too that Spain is the land of stark contrast, whereas Portugal offers you a whole palette of soft nuances and light shades

BTW, some of you might remeber Rasputin, a poster in ACOL and the Poly AC forum, who's from Lisbon.
He's a double bass player, and I met him when he cam in Milan for a concert, playing with the fado singer Mariza

Lisbon is one of my favourite cities. Would love to go back and see more of the country!

ah the fados...

I had the privilege to lend my guitar to some portugeuse dudes who played the fados in a impropondu concert.
The girl that was with us who was portugeuse didn't like them but I was mezmerized by them.
This sort of seaway nostalgia and lowdown but intense anguish and expectation of the return of a loved one... I can remember one or two greek songs who have those qualities but no more. Maybe because the aegean is more benign than the atlantic.
