Beautiful photos, especially of the old castles.

Hi CC - Sintra is quite stunning!

Ed (from Yuma)


Great. Never heard of Sintra before. Beautiful pics.

Kirk

Sintra is quite beautiful Ed! Makes for some pretty nice photos.

I've always wanted to go to Sintra, it seems like such a beautiful ancient city surrounded by moss and green forest. Pictures of the palace you went to and Quinta da Regaleira always seem so surreal.

Also clicked on the video and wow, as a Brazilian Portuguese accents from Portugal are the craziest. It's like speaking Portuguese but your mouth isn't opening all the way. I'm sure we sound equally odd to them.

Hi JS - For some reason, it seemed like Brazilian Portuguese was much more "melodic"....you could tell the difference; almost like two different languages.

J.S. @ Sun Diego Eats

It really is. In a related story I was in a fabric store with my Mom somewhere in Toronto and two older ladies were speaking quite fast. I was fascinated as these two European looking ladies were speaking fluent Mandarin! I pointed it out to my Mom and she listened in on it and arched an eyebrow "that's not Chinese". I listened again and realized she was right "True I think it sounds like Russian now". My mom practically thwacked me over the head: "It's PORTUGUESE. Your native language. They are Portuguese"

oops.

Kirk

That's really funny JS! The Missus thought it was Russian too the fist time She heard it.....
