Portugal in a Nutshell

The “In a Nutshell” series superficially summarizes an entire city, region, or country in a few bullet points. Ignoring historical and cultural complexities, I give you Portugal … in a nutshell:
  • When ordering hot chocolate, be advised that this means melted chocolate in a cup. It’s delicious, but I wouldn’t suggest drinking an entire cup for breakfast unless you’d like to wage war on your stomach.
  • There are hills everywhere, and they’re truly alive with the sound of music. Okay, I made the second part up.
  • If you don’t love Portuguese food, there’s something wrong with you. Seriously.
  • Portugal is the kind of place that makes you feel at home, so much so that you begin wondering how much it might cost to rent an apartment and wishing you could walk your dog around town.
