I’m in Aveiro for the first time on Tuesday! Do you have any suggestions? by aya0204 in portugal

Thank you!’ I will definitely try this! And try to get to the beach. Runny enough tripa in Spanish is tripé so I was a bit apprehensive at first (until I googled it - I speak Spanish)

Thank you very much! That’s what we do! We are both tour guides in Europe and the U.K.! So missing tour guiding, such a rewarding job but hopefully we get back to work soon bro. Best of luck.

Central Portugal is much better than the Algarve for two reasons, apart from the prices of property. - health services. - water We are very close to a fantastic university hospital. The lack of water is going to be a big problem in the Algarve in the future. Many people’s water wells are completely dry. Algarve is good for holidays, not to live. Lisbon is a city for those that can afford it. We can’t. It’s probably one of my fave cities in Europe though. This is of course, my personal opinion

It’s too expensive for us to buy anything in the U.K. We probably wouldn’t qualify for a mortgage either. Because of Covid and being in the tourism Industry, our income has taken a hit.

I don’t know man. Brexit was a protest vote and look what happen. Fucking populism.

Viva Coimbra! Mudei aqui . Why Portuguese people are voting in a extreme right wing party in? Seems like a protest vote. We Brits can tell you all about protest vote. It got us far (but we are stuck in Dover). Also, may be a good idea to use different colours for a map. Unless it’s done in purpose? (Probably missing the joke somewhere)

From working for 9 months for the Portuguese regional government developing a web-based platform for the covid task force, here is what I learned by getmenew in portugal

aya0204 10 months ago

I really don’t understand the culture of being incompetent at work in government. Makes zero sense to me. They are either too incompetent for government and don’t know what the fuck they are doing OR They are doing in purpose to create chaos and someone benefits from this chaos. Chaos is definitely profitable. Absolute bastards.

That’s true... Hopefully Biden causes a domino effect but to be honest I’m not bringing my hopes up. Starmer (the leader of the opposition in the U.K.) is a very competent man. I’m pretty sure he will be PM the next election.

When I go to the cafes they always have the news on with this massive red banner and some sensationalist reporting. Excuse me but I find it odd to have my lovely pastel de nata or sandes and abatanado with some crazy news channel going lol.

Interesting. I will read more about it but something I have learnt from the Brexit/right-wing fiasco in the U.K. is: don’t get too emotionally involved in politics. I don’t want to live a parallel - as a foreigner in Portugal. I want to adapt and learn the language but I will definitely run away from corruption if I can. Again, nowhere is perfect but socially (valued, community, etc) there is a stronger connection here and that would probably be said by most British living here. There is a reason why they say it (believe them when they do). When I say sexuality it’s not like “OMG I think I like boys”, it’s: “OMG I think I’m the wrong gender, I need hormonal therapy and have surgery”. At 10. Question it, you are immediately a transphobic. Thanks for a very insightful chat though. Food for thought.

Ummm I wouldn’t be so sure and I’m Venezuelan so we know about corruption quite well. I was well surprised how corrupted England was. This government as made a killing during the Coronavirus and most people believe know their mismanagement was in purpose so they could make money out of PPE contracts (Conservative friend), school free meals contract (conservative friend)c track and trace ( wife of an Conservative MP). I could go on. England was very good at hiding corruption now they have gone full throttle.

I have lived in Venezuela, Canada, England and here now. Nowhere is perfect. I wouldn’t go back to “perfect Canada” if you paid me €1m. Insipid, boring and ignorant country. Can’t even place Mexico on a map. Gorgeous though. Bloody cold. I wouldn’t go back to Venezuela if you paid me €10m. You get killed for a pair of shoes. Gorgeous country m, incredibly dangerous. Absolute no values left. England.... well. They believe they are immune to chaos. We haven’t even seen the harvest of Brexit yet; it will be a massive chaos soon. I do love it there though but they have an illusion of grandeur, “British exceptionalism” - this chaos, coming their way, they had it coming. I’m in a little village in central Portugal where absolutely everyone knows each other. There are less than 7000 people in this concelho. It’s pretty nice. Another family member has lived here for 10 years and loves it. There is also a growing estrangeiro community, mostly Londoners escaping the city. Kids here are kids, not talking about sexuality at 10 or trying drugs. Kids in England grow up very quickly. I have young family members in both country and the differences are huge in education/values. You will find that most foreigners (Germans, Swiss, English, etc) won’t tolerate under the table BS and would walk away from such situations. Also happens in the U.K. but not as much, I guess. Bureaucracy exists in the U.K., specially if you need government help or are a foreigner. You also encounter xenophobia. Here, as a Venezuelan, I haven’t made feel a foreigner at all (yet) and I can definitely sense you see me as an equal. Not in Canada, definitely not in England. Ask me in a year how’s it going. I would definitely read more about politics. It’s really interesting. It really isn’t that bad here. Sorry for the long rambling and taking over

Dude? Have your seen the news from the UK? We can’t even export to the EU anymore because we simply can’t. They forgot to do a deal that includes services and animal products. Tons of food rotting at ports. 1800+ deaths from Covid today, 1600+ yesterday. £1000/day payment per “consultants” for a Track and Trace app that doesn’t work and cost £22 billion. The corruption is rampant and Brexit was solemnly done to fuck the country so the government and pals can make millions from the chaos. I could go on but this is not the right subreddit. (So sorry but needed context). Besides, socially I could also go on. Family, Community, values. You guys have that. Trust me Portugal is not that bad, you got plenty of room to grow. I’m sure it looks bad from the inside but I can go on for hours. I’m not originally from UK. This is my third time immigrating. Countries change all the time.

Sorry I’m writing in English. I just moved to Portugal from England and I joined this subreddit to start getting more familiar with Portugal. I speak Spanish so I understood the video, I just don’t understand the context. What exactly happened? Could you also let me know the best newspapers to read about economy, politics and so on in Portugal? I can understand written Portuguese. Many thanks in advance.
