HOW TO BE PORTUGUESE-ISH by A. Bife

INTRODUCTION

Of course the question that may cross your mind, having read the title is, why should anyone who isn't Portuguese want to be Portuguese?

Many folk are quite happy with being whatever nationality they are, no matter whether they are actually living in the country of their birth, or not.

In fact I am quite proud of being a Brit.

Others, who immigrate to countries such as Australia and South Africa merely transplant themselves from one English community to another - and sometimes become more British than they ever were in Britain.

"All you have to do when you arrive in Portugal is go to a meeting of the Royal British Club and you will see the biggest bunch of stuffed shirts you thought possible." Said a South African acquaintance. (Who was somewhat anti-Brit anyway as his Grandmother had died at the hands of the British in a concentration camp during the Boer War in South Africa)

[Yes it was the Brits who invented concentration camps, not the Nazis]...
