I have taken a Nome de plume for this book - which is A. Bife.
Portuguese may enjoy the joke as ‘um bife’ is their nickname for any Brit (m) and I believe it owes its origins to the British enjoyment of roast beef.
(Or maybe the Portuguese enjoyment of roast Brits - who knows.)
I would like to thank every Portuguese who showed me hospitality and kindness during my stay in their country - and for showing me pity for being a Bife.
This book may contain statements of a controversial nature - they do not represent the views of anyone I know, or have met either in Portugal, or anywhere else and are entirely my own conclusions
All events are real; I have merely changed some of the names of the participants. (In case they decide to either disown, or sue me.)
I would be very interested to hear of anyone’s comments to these contents and this blogsite is for this purpose - which will contain extracts from the book.
