how to be portuguese, part v

rule number five: drink ginjinha.

ginjinha is a sour cherry liqueur, a typical drink near the square in rossio in lisbon. there's a place called a ginjinha where people get it, served in a small plastic cup, with a few actual cherries in the bottom. it's overwhelming, full of alcohol, and the cherries are practically inedible.

rule number six: eat a lot of fish. and pork. the portuguese diet is full of codfish, sardines, pork, and very few vegetables. and a lot of salt. yes, i tried the codfish. yes, i am happy to be back and eating vegetables; my body really missed them.
