To get back on topic: Because Brazilian men are hot as fuck.

Apart from the phrasebook I mentioned before, I don't really have any particular reason for being interested in Portuguese specifically. I'm interested in every language, so of course that includes Portuguese, too. :P

I'm interested in Portuguese mainly because Portugal it's one of my neighbouring countries, and I thought it would be useful if I could understand and speak their language.

And it's funny, but whenever I watch the Portuguese news, many times they include some news from Galicia as well (language it's a strong symbol of cultural identity).

Damn this thread is old. It was like my 4th post on this forum. I was only 22 years old at the time I made it. I've been here for nearly 4 years already?! Holy shit, can't time stop or slow down significantly?!

I cannot speak about the men, but I've never understood the "Brazilian women are hot" thing. Most I've seen are pretty average and I imagine the ones I could find in Brazil are mostly average as well and that the hot/ugly people percentages are "the same" everywhere.

Really? From Galicia in specific? I don't watch TV nowadays, so all of my news come from the internet, but whenever I come across a news article about the country next door it's always related related to their elections, Catalonia, their PM or their royal family.

Maybe it was just a coincidence. I don't watch the Portuguese news everyday.

Yes, it was horrible. And the famous slogan connected to it: "Nunca mais".
