When is tomorrow?

When you live in Portugal, you realize something very fast: Do not mistake the word TOMORROW for the day that comes after today! Big mistake! The thing is that the word tomorrow can mean next week, next month or my favourite translation; never… As long as you know that, you will have a much more pleasant life here.

Enjoy the beaches, drink large glasses of red, white, rose or green, perhaps some bubbly or port. Just don´t think about tomorrow, you´ll be fine. Don´t look at the time when you have an appointment, just put your clock one hour late and you´ll be on time, more or less, but who cares? Follow these simple rules, and you just might keep your head from exploding, especially if you are from Norway, the land of rules.
