above is the icon for "saudade" or that longing feeling of missing something or someone. i like to write about Portugal, the country, the language, the culture and the amusing things about each of these. i'll may write about soccer, but i don't really belong to any club. i'll cheer for the national team, but i only really care about one player (nuno gomes). i listen to portuguese music, not pimba music. i'll read any portuguese book and enjoy history books the most. this is me & my blog.
