We need not be reminded that one of the strongest qualities of the Portuguese is their warm and friendly personalities.
It is through this kind of spirit that organisations such as the Groupo dos Amigos of Carltonville was formed.
This circle of friends met 18 years ago at the Carltonville Catholic Church and have been coming to this original meeting spot every second Tuesday of the month.
The meeting brings together all friends, old and new from all over such as Klerksdorp, Potchefstroom, Randfontein and Johannesburg.
At meetings, friends will engage in playing cards as well as indulging in a hearty meal with a few drinks.
This time, the Portuguese Forum was present to be part of the warm atmosphere and witness the community of the Portuguese.
