Hello,
My husband and I are going to Portugal for 10 days. Specifically Faro and Lisbon.
March 14th to 27th.
Is there anybody there that would have an afternoon/evening free and accept an invitation to lunch/dinner and talk about the profession and Portugal? I do 99% Spanish interpreting these days, since the demand is overwhelming and my computer skills are getting rusted by the minute...
I live in New England in an area where we have a large, huge Portuguese community mainly from the Azores and now hundreds of Brazilian are arriving...
We'll be glad to get to know some one from there and we'll be glad to do the same when you come here.

I love Lisbon Mar 11, 2007

I just got back from Lisbon today. It's such a cool and beautiful city! Great places to eat out, beautiful sites and views...You're gonna love it! Sunny weather too and lovely Portuguese people. I am planning to start learning Portuguese. It's such a beautiful language!

Google Mar 12, 2007

If you use Google (Algarve translator), you will find (Proz) colleagues to contact. I suppose you could do the same for Lisbon.

Did you try to post this in the Portuguese forum? That might be another option.

What about proposing a powwow there? Mar 12, 2007

Hi Inge,

My name is Romina and I work at ProZ.com providing support for powwows. You can propose a powwow in Lisbon and I can help you by sending out the invitations and assisting you in the organization. What do you think?

You can contact me at romina@proz.com or over skype "rominabona" Argentina.

Regards
Romina

I also thought about a powwow Mar 12, 2007

but I think it might be a bit late to rearrange things, I don't know.

I sent an e-mail to Inge proposing to have dinner with her on Saturday night, since I'll be in Lisbon, but I'm not sure if she got it.

If you opt out for a powwow I can help you out with reservations in the restaurant. Just let me know about it.

I'll be in Lisbon only on the 17th Mar 13, 2007

I can probably do it until the 18th and ask my father for his second home key to stay there, but I really can't on the 19th or after that.

I live in Leiria, which is about 120 km far from Lisbon, so I only have the weekend.

Oh, what a shame! Mar 14, 2007

I'm sorry to hear that. We're arriving on the 15th and will probably stay in the Faro area the weekend...
I just don't know when exactly we'll be in Lisbon.
Can I e-mail you? I know you live so far away.. and you have a small child, right?
Would have liked to meet you!
Inge
