Russia is a great country
As for Portugal, maybe the worst european country...
Sorry nothing personal of course...
But it's true. Russia has it's own face and everybody in the world knows it but who knows smth about Portugal..?
And it's right you shouldn't go to my county just because you won't see all it's great culture, special people, beautiful nature, etc. 'cos your eyes cover with negative

what can i say, you are absolutely right about my country, in fact i've never said that i was proud of born in portugal, thats curious that you see portugal as one of the worst countries in europe, because we cannot be one of the best, but believe me, we have no poverty as i usually see in russia neither rich people with money from oil and some other dark business that nobody understands :wink: , they are just rich... and please dont ask why because you will get yourself in problems, then the weather :lol: what can say about that, my worst winter its probably better than your best summer, you know what.. its really great to have all this sun light hitting my house :wink:, and as i said before, its better to be weak than pretending to be strong :wink: to finish i just would like to make you a question, which face does russia has that everybody knows?

I think Russia is beautiful country, but sometimes I don't agree with her attitude for international affairs.

I think it does have a great history and culture. Several centuries ago, Portugal was one of the major economical and cultural centers in the world. And so many maritime explorers were born there, Magellan for example. So I think you are not being fair

No wonder. Russia’s territory is about what? one seventh, one eighth of the globe? and how big is Portugal compared to that?

there's nothing else to be discussed here, we all know which news we usually receive from russia, its a great great country, probably you belong to the small part of the society that lives above the others with luxury while the rest of the country is living without the minimum human conditions, so your speech its quite well :wink: sometimes i wonder if your president knows the meaning of human rights and this kind of things, probably not, all that matters is oil, gas and things that will bring money to him and his fellows :wink:

Hmmm... maybe you haven't studied its history. I haven't, either, but I would never make such a statement.

Russia is weird without any doubt, but I have met quite many people who are in love with it if they have already been here as a tourist.

Many many times I feel rather ashamed for being Russian, moreover it happends when I'm surrounded by my fellow countrymen and countrywomen claiming that Portugal is a country nobody knows much about...

Frankly speaking I strictly recommend you to visit some historical places here while they are not demolished yet by the government or ruined by the centuries. As it seems that's cheaper and less embarassing to make concrete replicas than to save the 'living legends'.

Well... I think Russia is worth visitin' not 'cos it has long history or sth like that... but you know... it's unforgettable experience just to stroll in our forests, to see the beauty of our lakes, to try to understand our people...

Yes, it's a pity that we have such a political situation... But I never refuse from goin' to the USA to see its Grand Canion because I don't support what Bush is doin' in Iraque... I never say 'no' if I'm offered to visit Brazil although it's a common fact the rate of poverty there is really high...
