I have been asked often about getting various things, particularly by people with building experience they seem to think the UK is the only place to get most building materials. My comment to them is usually "We now have running water and Electricity "
Today while sat on my veranda having breakfast i saw the bin men come to empty our bin, OK nothing unusually there but not today.
Today after the bin men came the bin cleaners and as the picture shows the huge roller to clean the bin.
So yes Portugal is a civilised country.
