Sunday in Austria

September 18, 2006

On Sundays all the shops are closed. Most people here in Austria don’t realize how strange this seems to me.

Being Portuguese I tend to think of Sundays as being days for going to church (I don’t), having lunch with the family and going for a walk (should read “going shopping”). So I always tell everyone here:

“If people in Portuguese cities came out on Sunday to find all the shops closed, there would certainly be civil war!”

Amen to that 😉

    olha que há coisas bem mais interessantes para fazer num domingo que ir às compras… olha ir passear para um castelo, embora seja dificil encontrar tortas de azeitão… e sim, aki ao domingo as coisas tb estão fechadas (tipo Baixa)kisses

  2. At least Lisboa doesn’t turn into a ghost-town on Sundays; I wonder what will it be like here when it starts raining cats and dogs…
