Too sick to blog except for this one thing…

Portuguese Anthem

I’ll will soon be able to tell you all about the Group Study Exchange Team coming from Portugal!

A team of 5 people from Portugal will be staying in Laredo this week. Why? To share with as many people as they can, talking about life in Portugal. Pretty soon, Laredo will be able to send its team of 5 to Portugal and they will let folks out there know what life is like in South Texas. Pretty neat, huh?

Even neater is that one of the young men will be staying in my humble home. Unfortunately, he probably won’t be able to sleep with all my coughing and whining about my throat. How do I say “sorry” in Portuguese??

    Sorry about the cough. I noticed Nazare on the map. That’s an extraordinary place.
    Portuguese people are very hospitable. I love the food there. Ask your
    visitors about “fado” and “saudade”. Ask them about their national Poet who
    wrote “Amor e um fogo que arde sem se ver…..”
    People from Portugal are usually able to understand Spanish.
    But if you speak Spanish — spoken Portuguese is not easily understood.
    My sister just visited the Azores where she witnessed some of their
    Lenten processions. She loved it there.
    I’m glad that some from Laredo will be visiting Portugal.
    Portuguese eat “bacalao/bacalhao” and it’s delicious. Also their bread!
    Mucha suerte con los que estan de visita. Juan Sanchez
