you win the price !

I do remember this very clearly, there is not really B or V sonority in
Portuguais, it is in the middle of a V and a B in french.

Porugal but also Brasil of course.
In spanish too : Cu*B~V*a.

Good day José, Your cuntry is beautiful and womans, wines, liquors, etc.

Yes, we have a common heritage since Napoleon at least!

I remember that until the 70's the culture in Portugal was dominated by the French ideas.
At school I had French classes for two years (there was no other choice at that time for the 5th and 6th grades).
At cinema i remember those great french artists, like Jean-Paul Belmondo, Alain Delon, Louis de Funès, Michel Piccoli, Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, Miou-Miou, Simone Signoret, etc, etc..
On the songs and music I remember a few from so many good artists like Edith Piaf, Dalida, Françoise Hardy, Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour, Yves Montand, Léo Ferré, etc..

But at a certain point Hollywood and USA took control and now in Portugal the most influential culture is the American and British for sure.

Talking about women and man here, we have mixed origins from Celtic mixed with Arabic, African and Jews, at very least.

Anecdotic as it may look, the history tells us that most people from Indo-European region ended up one way or another in this part of Iberia and because the European land ends here in Portugal, they had no other place to go and stayed here, unless they were able to build boats and go looking for other lands elsewhere...
And that's what Portuguese did more than 500 years ago, sailing around the world to build an Empire.

We have a joke about this, that you also may be aware of:
(I apologize upfront here if I am offending anyone, that is not my intent at all)
They say God created the world and humankind, but the Portuguese created the "Mulata" (mixed people between European and African people).

That is a way to express the Portuguese universal friendliness and will to mix with other genetically distinct people from all regions of the globe Smile
