How an English woman learned to love the real Portugal.
What is like to be a foreigner living in Portugal? Even if you learn the language and try to integrate into Portuguese life, the truth is it is never easy to understand the Portuguese.
Lucy Pepper moved from London to a Portuguese village in 1999 and, with no other foreigners nearby, she had to learn Portuguese and Portuguese habits as quickly as she could. Above all, she had to learn to love Portuguese food because, as far as she could see back then, there was nothing else to eat.
Through food-filled stories, Lucy Pepper shows us her Portugal, the real Portugal, which is not exactly that one seen on postcards.
