    i found it interesting that christopher columbus proposed his idea to the king of portugal because i always thought that he proposed it to Spain. Portugal is like Greece because they both have a prime minister. They are very different though because it is part of the EU. I am curious to learn more about this country's culture because i did not get to learn that much from this! Very nice glog i like the format!:)
