On Tuesday it was my husband's birthday and, as usual, we took the day to travel our country with the children and learn and teach them about our history, landscape, food, architecture, etc
We went south, to Alentejo. My favourite place in Portugal and many foreigners' favourite too. Germans love Alentejo so much that they come to visit and end up moving and living there. The German comunnity is, therefore quite big there.
