The B-Side...

"I love sports, particularly rugby, and I am a Benfica supporter. I like to read, particularly novels about and the history of the Portuguese presence in Africa. I love to travel, especially in Africa. I like to stay in Sintra at the weekend, to have a coffee and read the newspapers."
