Wow, sorry Stile. I havent logged on in a while and realize I missed your post. Sorry!
Yes I am Portuguese but born in Toronto. Don't travel as much as i'd like lately. When I get a chance I go spend time in our home in Estoril. Carcavelos to be exact!
I'm Brazilian, from Brasília (the capital), but the last few months I spent working in Salvador.
I spent the 2nd semester of 2007 studying at the Universidade do Porto, and got a chance to live and travel around Portugal for a while, it was very nice!
I passed by Carcavelos many many times during that period, I spent many days in Lisboa and also a few days in Cascais and Estoril (an old friend of my father lives in São João do Estoril and invited me to his house, very nice place and company!)
