Far from the hustle & bustle of Iberian metropolises, Lisbon is in a class of its own. It has a clearly distinct culture from its eastern cousin- Madrid – and I was pleasantly surprised. Although many frown upon the “sh”s & the “Bom Dia” (pronounced Bong Dia) , Portuguese is the result of centuries of multiculturalism. In Lisbon, the average person speaks English, French and Portuguese , and I have found myself fitting in perfectly.
