Perhaps next time you'll be able to visit Sintra.. you won't be disappointed if you do!
yeah the ratio white/black people represented is clearly exagerated regarding lisboet population, anyway he made the same (black or imigrant) with all the other cities he visited

Wow...I sorta felt a Brazilian vibe to the ambiance in Lisbon. Have many Brazilians moved there in the last few years?...many people looked like they could be from Brazil.

I understand. But the truth is the portuguese prefer shopping in the dozens of shopping malls and shopping centres in the outskirts of Lisbon rather than making use of traditional shops and boutiques.
Why?

portuguese malls are without any margin , one of de bests in de world, many cinemas, lots of resturants, important/hip brands.. malls (and stores) are usualy open until 23/24h.

neverthless when he went to Lisbon in Summer, the city centre is fulled with tourists, the lisboetas are either
-vacations out in Algarve or others parts of Portugal /world
-using many beaches around Lisbon ( there are realy many, for all classes, some more private other more "public" like da one he went, itīs just a question of chosing and mean of transport available
-malls
-esplanadeīs
-nightlife

many like me go to the beach in Lisbon and Algarve. Beach is all about Summer in here.
those who stay at historical centre are sellers /tourism ppl, few ppl who live there, robbers and fado ripoffers
