Work. The worst experience was to keep trying new contacts and not receive responses, neither positive nor negative. What I learned from this was that I have to learn to wait, not everything goes as planned.</span></p>

However, we were unable to reach a consensus as we had no contact with the communities.</span></p>

In relation to the Portuguese community (almost the entire population of the country), I feel “outsider”, as I am still learning about the culture, customs and problems of Portuguese citizens.</span></p>
