Is Tagalog related in any way to spanish? I was on a couple of ships, many, many years ago, which made brief calls at a couple of ports in the Phillipines, but never had much in the way of shore time as the stays were so brief.

Hola a todos con los que he hecho contacto y que me han ayudo con mis estudios de espanol en el pasado ano. Mi mas sincero agradacimientos y espero intercambio mas mensajes en el proximo ano 2020 ha sido un momento aterrador para algunos esperamos, que el Nuevo ano va a ser mejor. Si los nuevos vacines resultan ser un remedio eficaz tal vez el mundo sera capaz de recuparar un vestigio de normalidad.

I have managed to keep myself occupied and sane during the three periods of lockdown we have been subjected too, because of the various hobbies I have that I am able to practice alone.

Me logrado manterme ocupado y cuerdo , durante los tres periodos de restricciones estrictas que hemos tenido ser porque tengo muchas aficiones y pasatiempos que que soy capaz de practicar solo. Saludos Roberto

Hello Robert, Thank you for getting in touch with me. Huge difference between Portuguese and Spanish. Although, I've got a Catalan ancestor, Portuguese is a much "nicer" language than Spanish. It's softer/melodical. Goa was conquered by the Portuguese by the navigator Vasco da Gama. Now it's independent. Their Portuguese isn't refined ("piegeon spoken"). Bom Dia (Good morning) and I don't know what "Estas Callas". Perhaps it was "Está Calado" (Be quiet). How good is your knowledge of Spanish? If you're still a beginner, you could easily switch to Portuguese (?). I bet the Bar (s) you visited in Lisbon were the ones in "Cais do Sodré"...Feel free to ask me more. I also wish you all the best. Margarida
