A Few Don'ts ( and a few do's ! )

This that I'm going to say , may sound a little bit too controversial , but still , it must be said : this country's traditional culture is not something that pleases me most . I don't like bullfightings . I don't like the traditional portuguese way of thinking , which can be resumed in just 3 words : " Let It Be ! " . I don't see myself as being part of a community with values that need to maintained . I don't like the idea , that is still widely popular in this country that , people , in order to be considered good drivers , have to drive like a bunch of crazies when someone happens to give them a gun. I don't like when , we , who were once humble , start dissing others that , who just like us , had to leave their countries in order to find better places to live . I don't like when this country only seems to think about football , as if a war isn't still happening in Irak or starvation has been completely erradicated from the face of Africa . I don't like when footballers are treated like heros , when the real heros - firemen , some policemen and others - are still being exploited . I don't like the portuguese summer , not only because of fires that will claim this country in a not so distant future , but also because , people stop having interesting conversations during summer ( unless you consider talking about football , a good discussion subject ? ) . Well , i just don't..........................
P.S i do like some portuguese bands , fado and the portuguese winter though !
