OT - Portugal and duty free

Hey everybody!

I am leaving for Portugal tomorrow , and I have a few questions... any help is appreciated.

First, I know some posters here are Portugese (Shabutie I think), and I guess some have already traveled over there.. so I just wanted to ask about things you absolutly have to do/see in Lisboa and around. Restaurants serving other than fish , clubs, etc... generally will I be understood if I speak french/englsih (stores, restaurants)? Can I catch some canadian TV overthere? I'd like to watch the NHL draft...

I also wanted to know if anyone knows the price of cigarettes at the Dorval dutyfree shop?

thanks

You should be ok with any cod dish. I was in the Azores in 2001 and didn't speak English or French, I didn't have to. In Portugal in the big centers you should not have too much trouble.
Have you thought of bringing your own tv?

I was in portugal in 2004 for the euro cup. It actually is pretty hard to communicate with people over there if you do not speak the language. I did not find to many people who spoke english. Hardly any actually.

As far as tv goes. You will have englsih movies and stuff with portuguese subtitles on the bottom . I doubt you would be able to catch the nhl draft though. Will it be online??
