I don't know how to write the correct pronounce of the E haha

Hahaha, entertaining discussion. I think that if Edu = Eduardo, and it's pronounced as in Spanish, then it would be something like this: E (as the initial letter "e" in error in English) + DU (as the word "do" in English).
What do you think Edu, is it correct?

Almost... but not exactly haha, the E, the "do" is correct

ok, I found the word, it's like when you pronounce the word "employer", just the E without the rest

No Lexys.  Wish I could. I spend a lot of time in Portugal and I can speak a smattering of Portuguese;- but I find it a hard language to master.

Some people say that Spanish is also difficult to master for those who don´t know it, but with hard work nothing is impossible smile

I think it is, though I find I can get the gist more quickly with Spanish - maybe it has more in common with Latin than Portuguese does. I had a good grounding in Latin once upon a time!

When we take the car to  Portugal we go through Spain. We love it and pick a different route each trip. So yes!  Also, this time next week we will be in Peru which is partly Spanish speaking.

If you like Spain, you will surely love Cuba too, our colonial architecture is Spanish, many cities here have historic centers that are similar to Spain, and we have a very hospitable town.
Not in Peru, but I was in Copacabana, Bolivia, a city on the shores of Lake Titicaca that is close to the border with Peru. Very interesting area to know about the Inca culture, with many ruins of Inca buildings.

I have a few friends who have been to Cuba who tell me it is a special place to visit.

Yes, honestly, it's a special place. Many people in the UK come to visit. If some day you decide to come, let me know and you will have a free tour guide at your disposal, hahaha. In addition, it would be an honor to meet a member of Yoda Crew in person.

You are having a bad run with this aren't ya Murreee, Rafa was always going to be a risky choice because it was going to be his first tournament back from injury.....at least you don't lose a Rafa pick.

The fact he pulled out after the tournament had already started sucks eh, almost all of us picked him to win in brackets but it is what it is, Arnie picked Zverev to win the tourney in Obi Wan.
