Have a good day Spencer but you should know that for some, although they won't speak of it in public, it is not a happy day, the day of revolution, if there was a revolution, is what they say, as changes were happening anyway, hence the reason it was blood free and easy. The problem comes afterwards, where those that divided the power between them seemed to benefit and the communist given too strong a hand in some places that prevent changes for the better happening now. What's to celebrate when the country is in the state it is? Maybe they should use black carnations this year!

It was a great day in Lisboa. I was happy to be a part of it. Politics and current state of affairs aside.
