Serby wrote:tudo/todo
bom/bem

Ugh, so tricky, especially the first one. :x :lol: but now when I think, one of tudo/todo doesn't have plural, right? maybe I could learn it that way!
'Tudo' is always singular and that's its only form. "All is fine", "Tudo está bem".

'Todo' does have a plural form and a feminine form. Todo(s) and Toda(s).

"I broke all my dishes", "Eu parti os meus pratos todos", 'pratos' is plural and masculine, therefore you use 'todos'.

"The girl ate the entire pie", "A rapariga (or menina in Brazil) comeu a tarte toda", 'tarte' is singular and feminine, so you use 'toda'.

Even though, 'tudo' and 'todo(s)/toda(s)' mean 'all', they're used in different cases.

Thanks, sis! :D I get it now, tho it will take time till I'm not consfusing then in speech, as you don't have time to think as you do when writing.

Again, I think you underestimate my pt knoweledge, changing words according to the gender is easy-peasy. :P and I know well not to say ralariga in Brazil, I'd get slapped. :lol: :lol:

Wow, what have you been doing in the dunes? :lol:
I do explore the dunes often enough looking for birds so.... Lol

I've once caught a couple having sex and tried to get out of there as fast as possible. And overall as a birder I've seen plenty of people playing around in cars and so on.

Cacela Velha is amazing, I usually go to a beach on that same island.

You really have been working hard :lol:
I haven't been to half of those

But both my parents were active nudists so I kind of have the gene :lol:

Let's just say that every beach has a gay part there where there dunes start or is a bit isolated. :lol: I was just exploring, obvs. :lol:

It's basically a f fest back there, and a men only, so you are warned. :lol: oh, and I love nudist beahes. There's barely any offical nudist beaches here, but a lot of tolerated zones I guess. I just wish it wasn't so damn windy and cold at nights, but I hear it's not usually like that.

Btw, when I said Cacela Velha, I meant the beach, it's so nicee. And that tiny little town of the same name, so cute .And I am such a continental person that I didn't think about tide, so I had to walk thru waist deep water to reach the land again and then run to a damn train.

Public transport here <<<<<< like wth, 7 pm is no time for the last bus/train. :lol:

Yeah the public transportation sucks.
I know Cacela very well, and I was talking about the beach.

Regarding the crazyness going on, yeah not exactly what I'm looking for when I'm out birding. But I usually avoid this time of the year and will only go late summer so it's usually chiller, so it must be the reason why I haven't found anything like your describing.

I've only done nudism about 2 times in my life and I do realize those areas are more prone to f*ckery lol. So I tend to pay attention where I'm going to see if I haven't entered shady territory with my binoculars and long lens :lol:

Random fact:

The ukulele, that Hawaiian instrument, was introduced to Hawaiian people by Portuguese immigrants in the 19th century.

This is what it looked like:

It was called Machete (or Braguinha).

Im flying out to Lisbon for work on Sunday. I travel a bit in my job but it's mainly to France, Spain, Germany and Italy where even some basic phrases have become familiar to English speakers.

Portugese on the other hand? I don't know squat! Haha. Luckily the conference this time is in English but I'll be back to work with my team in November and I'd like to know a few basic things before I get there.
