Quicktime 59mb 3:48
It is important to me to experience other cultures, languages, lives, foods, and, most certainly, places. I see it as part of my work towards becoming a more rounded person. Unlike many people, whether they admit it or not, I do not care about my image or reputation. However, I must agree that it pleases me when others mention that they think of me as a 'good' person; I feel a sense of accomplishment. Often times, I will do things to alter another's perception of me, so that any reputation I may have with them might be shattered. I am instrinsically motivated. I enjoy things for the joy that they give me.
I often feel alone. Not because I am alone, but because those I am with, or those that wish to be with me, are extrinsically motivated. Even more so, because I am reminded of their betrayals.
This is a small glimpse into my visit to Portugal.
This is my life. This is me.

Some of you may have figured out that we were in Portugal. This particular clip is a wonderful view in Nazare. This is the last of the Portugal clips until I capture the DV footage, I think there are some neat things to be shown from there. That's partially what videoblogging is about, right? Experiencing/seeing what you otherwise would not?
