A Brazilian, on a visit to Lisbon, wants to buy an expensive book on Friday evening but does not have enough money on him. He asks the guy at the desk in his hotel:

“Will the shops close tomorrow?”


Next day he found the bookshop shut. He went right back to the hotel:

“You told me the shops would not shut on Saturday”.

“Quite right. They shut on Friday night!”
