If you get caught with drugs, you won't go to jail. You get to see medical, social and psychological workers and they will discuss your life choices with you and if you are addicted and need help.
Portugal had a serious drug problem a few decades ago and completely solved it that way. There are far less drug addicts now than in other countries.

Edible chestnuts aren't found in the Americas, they all died out. Inedible chestnuts are used for decoration though.

Most of the post is right, some are arguable, but #7 is wrong. If you come to Portugal to see Carnival you wasted your money. There is nothing special about it. Cold, rain, and a few local celebrities. Miles away (many many miles) from what is described on this post.
Instead, the São João night in Porto (23/6) and the Santo António night in Lisbon (12/6) are the best nights.... everyone is in the streets, parties with music, food and drink in every neighborhood in those towns. If you want to mingle with the locals in these towns, those are the nights to do it

The Portuguese like curvy girls and they have a totally different attitude toward the body.

There is no such thing as body-positive here because all girls know from their very childhood that they should love their bodies and respect the bodies of other people. Cellulite, stretch marks, curviness — people here are not shy about these things and even show these features off. One of the most common outfits worn by women are short denim shorts and a belly-baring top.
