Finding the ‘Portuguese Dream’ in Angola

«What does a Portuguese father of four school-age children do when he makes only €900 a month? He decides to emigrate.

Most Portuguese want to save as much of their salary in Angola as possible(…) They’ve agreed that he will move alone to the former colony and live there for three to five years, and he expects to spend lonely evenings “holed up at home with books and Skype.” His one condition is a free flight home once every six weeks.»

The title holds more truth than  the journalist probably imagined.
