In what might possibly be our most ambitious Diálogo to date, we explore some of the delightful bureaucracy that surrounds obtaining a residency permit in Portugal. With Michael (our special guest estrangeiro) moving to Algarve, we get a chance to explore some of the vocabulary and pronunciation quirks that set this region apart from the rest of Portugal! A special “obrigado” to our friends who helped us put this episode together: • Michael Reeve – provided his guidance, ideas and voice talent (from AFPOP.com, an organization that provides support to foreign residents and visitors throughout Portugal) • Rui Coimbra Sénior – O pai do Rui! • Eliana Silva – talented voice actress who not only brought the female characters of Algarve to life, but also helped us make sure the script was authentic as possible! Note: This episode’s mention of AFPOP is not a paid endorsement of any kind, just a friendly collaboration.
