"mostly rice with a lot of beans" typical portuguese food?!?!?! LOOOOOOOOOL, I lived in Lisbon all my life and never heard of that, that's a typical brazilian and african food not Portuguese. Portuguese has the best food in Europe and maybe the world. And yes I've travelled all around the world. It seems like you've been in very bad places in Portugal...

As in any country, you find different type people and behaviour depending on their social status and in which part of the country or city they live in. If you just moved to a new apartment neighbours usually will not talk to you until has passed several months and you gain some trust with them, this happens usually in big portuguese cities like Lisbon or Porto which I'm pretty sure it happens in every single big city of the world as well. In the country side people tend to be more open and get to know you pretty fast. I definitely don't agree that in Portugal grocerys and food are expensive, with 5 euros (6 dollars) you can buy food on a supermarket for 1 or 2 days. Portuguese wines are the best and the cheapest in europe and from $2 - $5 bucks you can buy a good bottle of wine on the supermarket. You can also eat out in a good restaurant for $10 a good meal (one person) including drinks. Not sure where you lived in Portugal but I live in Lisbon and been in all the main cities of the country and comparing with the other countries that I also visited, like USA, Japan, England, Spain, Portugal is by far the cheapest pleace. I agree that there are a lot of drunks and a famous one was Fernando Pessoa, he used to hang out all day in taverns drinking wine where he created all his books and poems. He is one of the most significant literary figures of the 20th century and one of the greatest poets that walked this earth.

In just 2 years Victor has become one of the most successful instructors on the web. Victor's incredible rising story has been covered on the Wall Street Journal, MIT Journal, Slate and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Starting his career as a freelancer Victor soon realized he could teach others through his Youtube channel with instructional videos. Soon after in 2011, Udemy scouting team invited him to upload all his Youtube videos to the Udemy platform as a complete course for students who wanted to learn Web Development from scratch. The featured course had more than 200 video lectures and covered most of the programming languages used to create websites. 

Since 2012 the course "Become a Web Developer from Scratch" has been updated with new lectures and chapters providing a total of 270 video lectures, projects and manuals.
